Or what if you lose or accidentally destroy your key fob and need an entire Toyota key fob replacement? Don't panic! The parts and service teams at Chicago Northside Toyota are here to help our Chicago area customers with all things related to Toyota key fob and battery replacement. First, we'll look at how to change the battery in your Toyota key fob.

Toyota Key Fob Battery Replacement: Step by Step

The helpful team members in our parts department will be happy to swap out your key fob battery for you. However, if you, like a lot of our customers, would like to change it yourself, follow these steps for proper Toyota key fob battery replacement:

  1. Remove the key from the fob. There's a little metal button right above the key part of your key fob. Press that button, and pull out the key.
  2. Open the fob. Fit a small screwdriver or some other flat object into the little slot that the key fits into, and pop open the fob.
  3. Remove the green circuit board. Do this gently, so as not to damage the components.
  4. Replace the battery. Take note of the kind of battery you need to replace, which should be written on a label on the original battery. You can also find this in your owner's manual; most Toyota key fobs require a CR 2032 3V. You can find a replacement battery at most electronic stores, or you can order one online.
  5. Put the fob back together, and place the key back in the fob.
