Land Rover Key Fob Battery Replacement

Man opening car with key fob

Most new Land Rover vehicles come with a Land Rover key fob, a sturdy, useful tool that many Willow Grove drivers find useful. If your key fob is low on battery, your instrument panel will display the message, “SMART KEY BATTERY LOW,” and you’ll need a new one. You can accomplish this task at home, so Land Rover Willow Grove covers how to open Land Rover key fobs and how to replace the Land Rover key fob battery below!

How to Replace a Land Rover Key Fob Battery 

The Land Rover key fob battery is a CR2032 type battery that you can find at any Mainline or Doylestown hardware store. If you’re having trouble, just contact the parts center at Land Rover Willow Grove for help. Once you’ve got this battery, you’re probably wondering how to open the Land Rover key fob to replace it. Here are the steps: 

  1. Release the Key: To access the Land Rover key fob battery, you’ll actually have to take the key fob apart. Find a small black button, press down on it, and you’ll release the metal emergency key blade from the plastic box. Other Land Rover keys will have a slide-able key you can remove. 
  2. Open The Key Fob: Use the key blade itself or a small screwdriver to pop open the black box and reveal the battery. 
  3. Replace the Land Rover Key Fob Battery: Use small instruments 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. Now you should have a fully operational Land Rover key fob. If your display still says that you need a Land Rover key fob battery replacement, your replacement battery may not actually be brand new.

Land Rover Key Care Tips 

Your Land Rover smart key is an extremely useful tool, but it does require some care to keep things going smoothly when operating your Land Rover. Here are a few tips to keep in mind: 

  • Heat and Sun Damage: Extreme heat and direct sunlight can damage your Land Rover key, so don’t leave it out all day near an open window. Dust and humidity also can negatively affect your Land Rover key. 
  • Other Radio Frequencies: Devices like medical equipment also use radio frequencies. Sometimes this can affect the performance of your smart key. 
  • Replace All Batteries At Once: It’s important to replace the batteries on all of your smart keys for your Land Rover when your panel is displaying the “SMART KEY BATTERY LOW” message. If you don’t, you couldn’t permanently damage the Land Rover key fob.
