Buick Key Fob Battery: When It’s Time

How do you know when you need a Buick key fob battery replacement? There are signs to know if you need to replace your Buick key fob battery. Most likely, you’ll observe that the range of effectiveness reduces rapidly and your Buick key fob just isn’t working the same.

How to Take Apart Buick Key Fob

Learning how to open Buick key fobs is basic, like any kids toy or remote in your Papillion home. Simply follow these instructions for how to take apart Buick key fobs and how to change battery in Buick key fobs:

  1. Press down on the button on the top of the key fob that releases the internal key. Most key fobs have a regular key embedded within them so that the key fob can still be used as a conventional key would.
  2. Once the key is removed, you’ll notice a slot in the middle of the space that it slid out from. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry open the key fob between the two small dents where the physical key used to be. Remove the Buick key fob battery cover.
  3. After you’ve removed the battery cover, you should be able to easily identify the battery itself. Remove the silver disc by hand or with the screwdriver. Confirm that your new Buick key fob battery replacement is the correct size.
  4. Install the new battery by pushing it into the gap with the positive side facing downward. With the new battery securely locked into place, reattach the cover and click the two sides back together. You should hear them snap into place. Then, you should be ready to go.
