How to Change the Battery in a Nissan Key Fob?

You've enjoyed your new Nissan and have figured out all of its great features. You love your Nissan Intelligent Key because of the ease of use it offers; however, the time has come when your key fob suddenly stops working. You wonder if one of the kids dropped in a glass of water and didn't tell you or threw it against the wall, and that caused it to break. Breathe a sigh of relief; your key fob's battery has most likely died and just needs to be replaced. A simple battery replacement will have you up and running in no time. In most cases at West End Nissan, we are more than happy to help you replace; however, it is quite easy to do on your own as well. Continue reading to learn more.

What to do if your Battery Dies

Once your battery dies, you will obviously need to replace it; however, you need your vehicle to get you to the store. Every Nissan key fob has a backup key inside that will allow you to get inside. You will notice a small release latch that allows you to pull out the backup key. Open your door and jump inside. If your Nissan doesn't have a physical ignition hole, just place the key fob up against the start/stop button and start your vehicle.

Changing the Battery in Your Key Fob

Now that you've had a chance to go to the store to purchase a new battery, the procedure to replace it is simple.

  • Remove the hidden key from its place in the key fob
  • Remove the rear key housing and remember its position
  • Remove the old battery and pop in the new battery
  • Make sure the negative side faces you
  • Clip the rear piece back on and insert the emergency key
