How to Perform a Toyota Key Fob Battery Replacement

If your Toyota key fob has suddenly stopped working in Minneapolis, then your battery will need to be replaced. How do you figure out what kind of Toyota key battery you need? You’ll need to open your key fob case and in newer Toyota models, you can do this by pulling out the hidden key and inserting it into a slot that’s designed to open the case. If you have an older model, you’ll need a thin object to pry the case open. Once you have the case open, follow these instructions:

  1. Open the key fob with either your key (newer models), fingers, or a thin but strong object at the designated notch or slot. 
  2. After the case is open, gently lift the circuit board to get a good look at the battery. 
  3. Take note of what kind of battery it is and its placement in the case. Most Toyota models use a CR2032 battery. These batteries are widely available in Maple Grove stores or online, and they’re usually under $5 depending on the brand and package size you purchase. 
  4. Once you have your Toyota key fob battery replacement, put it inside of your key fob case and close it. 
  5. Test the key fob to make sure that it’s working. If it’s not working, open the case again and readjust the battery to ensure the connections are clean and that they’re making contact with the battery. If your key fob still isn’t working, you may need to default to a Toyota key fob replacement. 

What to Do if You Have a Broken Toyota Key Fob

If you’ve broken your Toyota key fob, depending on the damage, you have different replacement options. If you’ve simply damaged the key, you can visit your local Minnetonka service center to get a Toyota key replacement. Technicians can cut you a new key and you’ll be able to continue using your key fob. Have you broken the key fob case but not the internal electronics? If so, you can order a replacement case, but this will depend on the availability of the case and your Toyota dealer. Drivers who have completely damaged their key fob, whether it’s physical damage or significant water exposure, will need a Toyota key fob replacement. 

Toyota Key Fob Replacement

If your key fob is too damaged to be repaired, or you’ve lost it, then you’ll need a Toyota key fob replacement. However, the cost of a new Toyota key fob can range anywhere from $200 to $300. Although, this number can vary depending on your dealership and if there are any parts specials going on. You may be wondering why key fob replacements are so pricey. Replacements cost more because key fobs require that physical keys be cut and electronics programmed in order to match up with the correct vehicle.
