Life can be chaotic. Like when you're pouring coffee, shepherding three kids, feeding the dog, and trying to calm your boss down over the phone because he can't find his lucky pen. And just when you're finally out the door, ready to take on the day, your Kia key fob stops working. Or breaks. Or you just can't find it because either the youngest or the dog has buried it in the backyard for the umpteenth time! Whenever that happens, Keyless Entry Remote is there to help you control the chaos.
This guide will teach you how to replace your Kia key fob's battery and about what precautions to take should you lose or damage your remote. With this advice, you can face any Kia key fob challenge with the confidence and knowledge of an expert (and minimal chaos).
Batteries are the most common cause of key fobs suddenly losing fuctionality. To find the correct battery for your Kia key fob, use this battery finder by simply entering your year, make, and model. Kia remotes most commonly use a CR2032, CR2016, & 23A 12V battery. Most key fob batteries cost less than $6 and are available for purchase online.
For newer Kia models, insert the hidden key into a designated slot to open the case. For older Kia 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 Kia key fob on our YouTube page. If you cannot find your specific Kia key fob, you can find a video showing the battery replacement process of a different remote that is the same type as yours.
If changing your Kia key fob's battery does not resolve your issue, you may need to replace your Kia key fob entirely.
Your options for a broken Kia key fob are determined by the extent of the damage. 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 Kia logo, an aftermarket case is also an option. If the key fob is severely damaged beyond the key blade or case, then a complete Kia key fob replacement will be necessary.
If your Kia key fob is misplaced or irreparably damaged, the only solution is to order a replacement key fob.

After receiving your replacement Kia key fob, you'll need to program it and cut the key. Some remotes are easy to program by yourself, but others need to be taken to an automotive locksmith to be programmed.
