Toyota Key Fob Battery Replacement

Most likely if your Toyota key fob has suddenly stopped working, then the battery needs to be replaced. In order to find out which battery you need, you’ll have to open your key fob case. In newer Toyota models, you can do this by pulling out the hidden key and inserting it into a slot specifically meant to open the case. On older models, you should be able to use a thin object to pry the case open where there is a noticeable notch on the case. Then, follow these instructions:

  1. Open your key fob with either your key (newer models), fingers, or a thin but strong object at the designated notch or slot.
  2. After the case is open, gently lift the circuit board to reveal the battery.
  3. Take note of what kind of battery it is and how it sits in the case. Most Toyota models use a CR2032 battery. These batteries are widely available in Vacaville stores and online. They’re usually under $5 too, depending on the brand and package size you buy.
  4. Once you have your Toyota key fob battery replacement, put it inside of your key fob case and close it.
  5. Test your key fob to ensure it’s working. If it doesn’t, open the case again and readjust the battery, making sure the connections are clean and they’re making contact with the battery. If the key fob still doesn’t work, you may need a Toyota key fob replacement.

Broken Toyota Key Fob

If you broke your Toyota key fob, you have different replacement options depending on the damage. If you’ve simply damaged the key, you can get a Toyota key replacement at your local Vallejo Toyota service center. Technicians can cut you a new key and you will be able to continue using your current key fob.

If you’ve broken the key fob case but not the electronics inside, you could possibly save some money by just ordering a replacement case. This will depend on the availability of the case and your Toyota dealer though. If you’ve damaged your key fob completely either through significant exposure to water or physical damage, then you will need a Toyota key fob replacement.

Toyota Key Fob Replacement

If your key fob is damaged beyond repair, or you’ve lost it and are unable to locate it, then you will need a Toyota key fob replacement. Unfortunately for Napa drivers, the cost of a new Toyota key fob can be anywhere from $200 to $350. This number may vary depending on your dealership and if there are any parts specials that can be applied. Replacements cost more because key fobs need physical keys cut and electronics programmed in order to match up with the correct vehicle.

Luckily for Fairfield residents, the Hanlees Fairfield Toyota parts center has a variety of parts on hand and parts available to order so they can get their Toyota key replacement and Toyota key fob replacement faster.
