Land Rover Key Fob Battery Replacement

Land Rover key fob near Range Rover

 

Your Land Rover key fob may not look like much on the surface, but the little battery that powers its functions is incredibly important! After all, you’ll need a working key fob in order to access your vehicle, and if you know how to replace your Land Rover key fob battery yourself, you can eliminate downtime and keep moving forward. Although you can always schedule service with our team, we’ve laid out everything you need to know about Land Rover key fob battery replacement below.

How to Replace a Land Rover Key Fob Battery 

First things first: you’ll need to pick up a new CR2032 type battery at our parts department. Can’t make it into Eatontown? It’s not hard to find these batteries at hardware stores and third-party auto parts centers in Rumson and Red Bank. Before you make your purchase, remember that it’s a good idea to replace the batteries for all of your vehicle’s keys at the same time!

Once you’ve got the part you need, you’re ready to replace the battery in your Land Rover key.

  1. How to Open the Land Rover Key Fob: Find the small black button on the fob and press it down to release the emergency key. Now that the key has been released, you can use the metal key—or a flathead screwdriver—to pry open the fob casing. 
  2. Replace the Battery: Remote the old CR2032 battery and place the new one right where it should be, with the positive side facing up. During this process, touch the battery as little as you can. The moisture and oil from your fingertips can shorten its life.
  3. Put the Key Back Together: Pop the two halves of the key fob back together and return the metal emergency key to its sheath. If your key doesn’t seem to be working properly or you still see an error message displayed on your dashboard, let us know! We’ll help you solve the problem.

Land Rover Key Care Tips 

You may not think about your Land Rover key fob very often, but if you want to maximize your key’s battery life or minimize disruptions in your day-to-day, it’s good to keep the following tips in mind:

  • Extreme heat and extreme cold may wear out a Land Rover key fob battery prematurely; these may also damage the key fob itself. For these reasons, we recommend keeping your key fob inside the house—and not in your garage.
  • Do you have smart-home technologies, garage door openers, or medical devices that transmit information via a radio frequency? Certain common frequencies may overlap with the frequency used by your key fob—potentially leading to issues that are not due to a dying battery. Keep this in mind if you have key trouble at home, but not while you’re out and about.
