What Does a Honda Key Battery Look Like?

It is recommended that you purchase a genuine Honda key battery. However, if you can’t buy a genuine part, you can ask one of our team members about the required battery voltage and size. Most key fobs require a 3-volt battery. These batteries are circular, flat, and silver.

How to Change the Battery in a Honda Key Fob

  1. First, find the button that releases the key inside of the fob. Slide this button, and move the key out of the fob.
  2. Then, insert the key in the slot at the key fob’s top.
  3. Twist the key, and press away from the key until the back of the fob comes off. Make sure to hold the key fob together by pressing down on the area where the battery is located with your thumb, so the entire key does not fall apart.
  4. Use your other hand to take out the old Honda key fob battery. Replace it with a new battery, making sure that the new battery is facing the correct way.
