How To Do A Key Fob Battery Replacement

If your Toyota key fob ever stops working, you’re probably only looking at a battery that needs replacing. Luckily enough, every task from knowing how to open a Toyota key fob to knowing how to put a new battery in is pretty simple. Follow these steps:

  • For a newer Toyota model, find the hidden key that can be pulled out and inserted into a slot that opens the case.
  • For older models, find the noticeable notch on the case and use a thin object to pry it open.
  • Gently lift up the circuit board to expose the battery below.
  • Take a moment to write down the type of battery—most Toyota key fobs use a CR2032 battery that can be found easily in stores or online.
  • Place the battery replacement inside the case and reseal it.
