  1. Locate the button to release the metal key inside the fob. Slide that button open, and pull the key out.
  2. Carefully place the edge of the key into the slot at the top of the key fob. Wedge the key and lightly twist; the back of the key fob should pop off.

How to Replace a Honda Key Fob Battery

Once you have your Honda key fob open, you want to take precautions to ensure that the entire fob does not fall apart. If you attempt to simply pull the battery out, you may pop out essential components and create a mess. Follow these pro tips to keep your fob intact while replacing your Honda key battery:

  1. Hold your thumb right above where the battery is located.
  2. Using your other hand, carefully pry the dead battery out and replace it with a fresh one.
  3. Line the back of the key fob up with the front half, and gently press the pieces back together. Once secured, you will hear a snap.

How to Program a Honda Key Fob

Now that you know how to open a Honda key fob and swap the battery, it is natural to want to learn how to program a Honda key. Once you have conquered the task of learning how to change a Honda key battery, programming is a breeze. You can learn how to program a Honda key with these simple steps:

  1. Enter the cabin, securely shut all doors, and have your key and fobs to be programmed ready.
  2. Insert the key and turn to the “On” position. Press and hold the “LOCK” button for one second.
  3. Release the button and turn the key to the “Off” position. Repeat this process twice more.
  4. Turn the key to the “On” position and hold the “LOCK” button on the key fob for one second. Wait for the doors to lock and unlock automatically. Once the locks have cycled, your vehicle is in remote programming mode.
  5. Once again hold the “LOCK” button for one second. Once the locks cycle, the key fob has been successfully paired with your vehicle. Repeat the process with any additional fobs that need programming.
  6. Exit remote programming mode by turning the key to the “Off” position in the ignition.
