Get to know the functions of your key, and visit us in Westbrook to pick up a replacement Honda key fob.

Features of the Honda Key Fob

Your Honda key fob is designed to make your Branford commutes easier than ever. No need to fumble with a set of keys to lock the car or climb in and out of the cabin to open the windows. Just grab your key fob and try out the following handy features:

  • Locking the Car: For most vehicles, press the lock or unlock button to secure your car in an instant. Some models will even detect your key automatically if your fob is in your pocket, unlocking the door once you touch the door handle.
  • Open the Trunk: Press the trunk button on your key fob, and your trunk will pop open.
  • Roll Down Windows: Many models offer the ability to roll down the windows remotely, so your car is open to the fresh air at your command.
  • Remote Start: If you have a car with Remote Start installed, press the Remote Start button to activate your engine from outside of the vehicle.
  • Memory Seats: Flip over the key fob to find a 1 and 2 button. Simply program these buttons for multiple drivers in the household, and you can adjust the driver’s seat settings with just a tap.

How to Open a Honda Key Fob

If you need to pop in a fresh Honda key fob battery, you can take care of it from your own garage in Middletown. But first you’ll need to know how to disassemble the key fob. Here are the steps:

  • There is a button on the plastic casing that releases a metal key inside. Look for the button and press it.
  • Grab the key and wedge it into the slot at the top of the key fob.
  • Carefully twist the key to separate the two halves of the key fob.
  • The back of the plastic casing will open, and you’re free to change the battery.
  • If you don’t find a button to open the plastic casing, your key fob may use a small metal screw instead. Use a flathead screwdriver to disassemble.

How to Replace the Battery in a Honda Key Fob

Now that you’ve opened the plastic casing, how do you replace your Honda key fob battery? It’s easy to do, and you can even pick up a brand new battery at our parts department. Follow these steps:

  • After following the steps of “How to Open a Honda Key Fob” above, your key fob will be in two pieces.
  • Look for the battery inside the unit and take note of where the positive and negative sides are resting.
  • Remove the old battery and grab your new battery, but be careful not to touch the terminals. The oils on your skin can cause corrosion.
  • Insert the new battery in the same position as the old one.
  • Reassemble the casing, snapping both halves back together.

What Should I Do If my Honda Key Fob Falls Apart?

If the internal pieces of your key fob fall out, don’t panic. You can use your spare key as a guide on how to reassemble it.

  1. Place the buttons into the correct slots.
  2. Insert the crossbar between the empty spaces of the top two buttons, with the crossbar’s curvature facing outwards.
  3. Insert the battery back into the motherboard with the positive sign facing out.
  4. Put the motherboard back into the key fob with the rubber film up against the buttons.
  5. Line up the back of the key fob with the front, and press them together until you hear them snap into place.
  6. Stand next to your vehicle and press all the buttons to make sure that they are working properly.
