How to Replace an INFINITI Key Fob Battery


The INFINITI Intelligent Key provides secure and convenient access to your vehicle with just the press of a button, but what if your key fob isn’t working like it should? It may be time to pick up a new INFINITI key battery at your local parts shop. And while you can visit a dealership for troubleshooting tips, learning how to replace an INFINITI key fob battery is simple enough to do at home in Glendale. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps.

What INFINITI Key Fob Battery Do I Need?

Whether you swing by Los Angeles or order parts online, it’s important to get the right replacement battery before you get started. A standard INFINITI key fob typically needs a CR2025 type battery, while an INFINITI Intelligent Key fob needs a CR2032 battery. Not sure what you need? Be sure to get in contact with our team and we’ll make sure you get the right supplies!

How Do I Replace My Battery?

  1. Find the release tab on the back of your INFINITI key fob and press to remove the metal car key.
  2. Open the panel underneath the key compartment. We recommend taping an edge of a flathead screwdriver to pry the panels apart without causing scratches or damage.
  3. Remove the old battery and insert the new battery with the positive side facing down.
  4. Reattach the panel, reinsert the metal key.
  5. Test out your newly assembled key fob.

Troubleshooting Tips and Tricks for Fixing an INFINITI Key Battery

What if you’re still having issues with your INFINITI key battery or key fob? Here are some of the top troubleshooting tips from our service center:

  • Is your vehicle failing to start? Your INFINITI key fob battery may be positioned too low. Hold the key closer to the start button to get a better signal.
  • Is the push-button start not working? If replacing the key fob battery didn’t work, you may need to change the vehicle’s battery. Schedule your service appointment to fix the problem.
  • Did your INFINITI key fob die while you’re out and about in Downey? Use the metal key inside the key fob housing to start the car and lock the doors manually.
