How to Replace a Land Rover Key Fob Battery: Step by Step

After locating the appropriate Land Rover key fob battery, it’s time to open the key fob and replace the key fob battery. It’s really easy – simply follow these steps:

  1. Release the Key: To access the Land Rover key fob battery, you will need to take the key fob apart. Find a small black button, press down on it, and you will release the metal emergency key blade from the plastic box. Other Land Rover keys will have a slide-able key that you can easily remove.
  2. Open the Key Fob: Use the key blade itself, or a small screwdriver, and pop open the black box to see the battery.
  3. Replace the Land Rover Key Fob Battery: Use a small tool like a screwdriver to remove the battery and replace it with a new one, positive (+) side up. Avoid touching the new battery, as moisture and oil from your fingers can corrode the material and reduce your Land Rover key battery life.
  4. Put the Key Back Together: Reverse the process you just followed. You should now have a fully operational Land Rover key fob!

If for some reason your key fob is not working, your replacement battery is most likely not brand-new, or it’s possible you need a new key fob altogether. Regardless of the issue you’ve encountered, Land Rover Wilmington is here to help!

Essential Land Rover Key Fob Care Tips

This smart key is truly a useful tool, but it definitely requires additional care when operating your Land Rover vehicle. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

  • Heat and Sun Damage: Extreme heat and direct sunlight can damage your Land Rover key, so be sure it’s not left out all day near an open window. Dust and humidity can also negatively affect your Land Rover key.
  • Other Radio Frequencies: Devices like medical equipment also use radio frequencies, which can affect the performance of your smart key.
  • Replace All Batteries at Once: It’s essential that you replace all of the batteries in your smart keys when your panel is displaying the “SMART KEY BATTERY LOW” message. Neglecting this can permanently damage your Land Rover key fob.
