This flat, circular 3-volt battery is good to have on hand so you’re never left unprepared if your key fob dies during your travels.

Open The Honda Key Fob & Replace The Battery

After you’ve acquired a new CR2025 battery for your Honda key fob, you’ll need to learn how to open the Honda key fob case to replace the battery. This is a quick and easy process — simply follow the instructions below:

  1. If you have a newer Honda model, remove the metal key stored within the case.
  2. Find the small notch in your Honda key fob and use your key, a screwdriver, or a paperclip to gently open the case. This can be done by either turning your tool of choice in the slot or carefully prying the case open from the notch.
  3. The case should pop open easily. When it does, follow the next instructions carefully so your key fob doesn’t come apart.
  4. Hold your thumb right above where the battery is located.
  5. Using your other hand, carefully pry the dead battery out and replace it with the new one.
  6. Line the back of the key fob up with the front half, gently press the pieces back together. Once secured, you will hear a snap.

Now that you know how to change the battery in your Honda key fob, you will want to test it to ensure it’s working properly. If your Honda doesn’t respond to your remote’s commands, open it back up to ensure that the battery is facing the right way and that all the connections are making contact with the battery. If you’re still having trouble, you may need to program your Honda key again.

How to Program a Honda Key

If you need to re-program your Honda key after replacing the battery, you’ll be relieved to know that this is also an easy task. Read through the instructions first, then go out to your car and follow the following steps:

  1. Enter your Honda cabin, shut all doors securely, and have your key and fob(s) close by to be programmed.
  2. Insert the key and turn to the “On” position. Press and hold the “LOCK” button for one second.
  3. Release the button and turn the key to the “Off” position. Repeat this process twice more.
  4. Turn the key to the “On” position and hold the “LOCK” button on the key fob for one second. Wait for the doors to lock and unlock automatically. Once the locks have cycled, your vehicle is in remote programming mode.
  5. Once again hold the “LOCK” button for one second. Once the locks cycle, the key fob has been successfully paired with your vehicle. Repeat the process with any additional fobs that need programming.
  6. Exit remote programming mode by turning the key to the “Off” position in the ignition.
