This guide will teach you how to replace your Dodge key fob's battery and about what precautions to take should you lose or damage your remote. With this advice, you can face any Dodge key fob challenge with the confidence and knowledge of an expert.
Dodge Key Fob Battery Replacement Instructions
When your vehicle's key fob stops working without warning, the battery is most likely the cause and needs to be replaced. To find the correct battery for your Dodge key fob, use this battery finder by simply entering your year, make, and model. Dodge remotes most commonly use a CR2016, C$2032, & CR2450 battery. Most key fob batteries cost less than $6 and are available for purchase online.
To open and replace the battery in your Dodge key fob, follow these instructions:
For newer Dodge models, insert the hidden key into a designated slot to open the case. For older Dodge models, 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 Dodge key fob on our YouTube page. If you cannot find your specific Dodge 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 Dodge key fob's battery does not resolve your issue, you may need to replace your Dodge key fob entirely.
Dodge Key Fob Case & Key Blade Replacement Tips
If your Dodge key fob is broken, the damage determines the number of options you have. If the key blade is the only issue, you can easily order a new, uncut key blade at Keyless Entry Remote. To get your new key blade cut for your use, seek out trusted automotive professionals such as the ones found here on our Locksmith Locator page.
If only the key fob case is damaged and the internal electronics are still in good condition, ordering a replacement case is a cheap remedy. However, this does depend on the availability of the cases. If you don't care about your replacement key fob case sporting the Dodge logo, an aftermarket case is also an option. If the key fob is severely damaged beyond the key blade or case, then a complete Dodge key fob replacement will be necessary.
