A dead battery is the most common reason a remote stops working. To find the correct replacement battery for your Mazda CX-5 key fob, use this battery finder by entering your year, make, and model. Mazda CX-5 remotes usually use a CR2032 & CR2025 battery. Most key fob batteries cost less than $6 and are available for purchase online.
Follow the below instructions to open your Mazda CX-5 key fob and replace the battery:
For newer Mazda CX-5s, insert the hidden key into a designated slot to open the case. For older Mazda CX-5s, 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.

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 Mazda CX-5 key fob's battery does not resolve your issue, you may need to replace your Mazda CX-5 key fob entirely.
