Toyota Key Fob Battery Replacement

What should you do if you drive around Cincinnati and your Toyota key fob stops working? Don’t stress about it. You likely need a Toyota key fob battery replacement. Go to the closest battery store and open the black key fob casing to find the key fob battery. These are the instructions for how to open a Toyota key fob battery casing: 

  • Recent model-year Toyotas include a hidden key blade that must be removed and inserted into the rectangular slot to open the case. (The slot is the same size as the tip of the key blade.)
  • If you have an older Toyota model, you’ll need a thin object (like a dime or screwdriver) to pop open the notch on the Toyota key fob case. 

Once you have opened it, follow the instructions below to complete a Toyota key fob battery replacement:

  1. Gently lift the circuit board to get a good look at the battery. 
  2. Note what kind of battery it is and how it’s positioned in the case, or take a photo of it using your smartphone. That way, you know how to put it back in correctly. Most Toyota models require a CR2032 battery, which you can find online or in the %%di_name parts center near Loveland. 
  3. Put the new Toyota key fob battery replacement inside the case in the same position as the old one, and snap it closed. 
  4. Test your Toyota key fob to ensure it’s working with the new battery. If it’s not working, open the case up again and readjust the battery, ensuring the connections make clean contact with it. You might need a Toyota key replacement if it’s still not functioning correctly.
