Everything You Need To Know About Replacing Your Chevrolet Corvette Key Fob
'Life always finds a way.' To catch you off guard, that is. Even the most diligent of people can find their Chevrolet Corvette key fob is suddenly not working, broken, or lost on a day when time is not on their side. When that happens, Keyless Entry Remote is there to help you show life that you are also capable of 'finding a way'.
Use this guide to learn how to replace your Chevrolet Corvette key fob's battery and what to do when you've lost or damaged your remote.
Chevrolet Corvette Key Fob Battery Replacement Instructions
A dead battery is the most common cause of a remote that has suddenly stopped working. To find the correct replacement battery for your Chevrolet Corvette key fob, use this battery finder by entering your year, make, and model. Chevrolet Corvette remotes usually use a CR2032 battery. Most key fob batteries cost less than $6 and are available for purchase online.
Follow the below instructions to open your Chevrolet Corvette key fob and replace the battery:
For newer Chevrolet Corvettes, insert the hidden key into a designated slot to open the case. For older Chevrolet Corvettes, use a thin object (like a flathead screwdriver) to pry open the case at the notch. After opening the case, gently lift the circuit board to access the battery. Before removing the battery, note how it fits in the case. Next, replace the old battery with the new one and close the case. Test your key fob's functionality by pressing buttons to ensure it is working properly. If it doesn't work, adjust the battery by ensuring the connections are clean and in contact with the battery.
To see step-by-step video instructions on replacing your remote's battery, search for your Chevrolet Corvette key fob on our YouTube page. If you cannot find your specific Chevrolet Corvette key fob, you can find a video showing the battery replacement process of a different remote that is the same type as yours.
There are five types of key fobs:
Exactly as it sounds, just a remote with no other special features
A remote with an attached key that flips out like a switchblade
A remote with a key blade sticking out of it, the key blade does not retract or hide
A remote with a key hidden inside, the key fob and key blade are not connected
A remote that is often associated with push-to-start
If changing your Chevrolet Corvette key fob's battery does not resolve your issue, you may need to replace your Chevrolet Corvette key fob entirely.
Chevrolet Corvette Key Fob Case & Key Blade Replacement Tips
Depending on the damage, you have options when dealing with a broken Chevrolet Corvette key fob.
If the key blade is the issue, you only need to order a new, uncut key blade from Keyless Entry Remote. Then you need to cut your new key blade. For this service, seek out trusted automotive professionals, such as the ones found here on our Locksmith Locator page.
If your Chevrolet Corvette key fob's case is damaged but the internal electronics are fine, you can order a replacement case. This does depend on the availability of Chevrolet Corvette key fob cases. Aftermarket cases are also an option.
If your remote is damaged beyond the key blade or case, then you may need to replace your Chevrolet Corvette key fob entirely.
