Have you tried using your Jeep key fob to unlock your car, but the doors would not open? If this is the case, it may indicate that your key fob need a new battery.

How to Change the Battery in a Jeep Key Fob?

The Jeep key fob is simple to access since it is made up of two pieces of plastic that click together. When you open the case, you’ll discover a little circuit board, a rubber keypad, and the battery.

Simply grab the following objects before you begin:

  • Screwdriver with a little flathead
  • CR2032 Replacement Battery

When you have both, proceed to change the battery as follows:

  1. Insert the flathead screwdriver at the keyring mount into the key fob seam.
  2. To force the two key fob parts apart at the seam, softly press down on the top of the screwdriver. Make sure you don’t twist the plastic as you’re doing this.
  3. Take the old battery out of its casing.
  4. Insert the new CR2032 battery, ensuring that the negative side is facing down.
  5. Place the circuit board into the keypad, then the keypad inside the key.
  6. Clasp the two pieces of the key fob together.

  4. Press the lock and unlock buttons on your key fob for 3 seconds, then the unlock button for 2 seconds.
  5. Turn off the ignition and remove the programmer.

The key fob should function after two minutes.

How Can I Tell if the Battery on My Jeep Key Fob Is Low?

There are various indicators and indications that your Jeep key fob battery is running low on power. When your key fob battery needs to be replaced, you may notice any of the following symptoms:

Multiple Button Presses to Lock/Unlock Doors: Do you struggle to open your vehicle, moving the key fob up and down and diagonally in the air to lock or unlock the doors? Do you find yourself attempting to make touch with the edges of the buttons?Do you have to push many buttons to get into your car or properly lock your valuables inside while running errands in Rice Lake? These are all indications and symptoms of a Jeep key fob battery that is nearing the end of its life.

Reduced Range: Most Jeep key fobs (and most key fobs, for that matter) are meant to have a 50-foot functioning range. Any less, and there’s a high probability your key fob battery is on its way out.

Inconsistent Operation: If you notice that you can unlock or lock your vehicle sometimes but not others, this is an indication that your battery is fading quickly. Of course, with automobiles with push-button start and keyless entry, ensuring your smart key fob has enough battery to start your car is vital. Don’t let your key fob battery expire or you’ll end yourself stuck on the side of the road in Rice Lake! Your key may potentially “unattach” from your automobile for security reasons, necessitating costly reprogramming!
