Life often has a way of throwing unexpected challenges at us. Even the most prepared individuals can discover their Ford key fob is no longer functional, broken, or lost on a day when time is already short. Whenever such an unfortunate event occurs, Keyless Entry Remote is there to help you get back on track with your regular schedule.
This guide will teach you how to replace your Ford key fob's battery and about what precautions to take should you lose or damage your remote. With this advice, you can face any Ford key fob challenge with the confidence and knowledge of an expert.
If your vehicle's key fob suddenly stops working, the battery is most likely the culprit and needs to be replaced. To find the correct battery for your Ford key fob, use this battery finder by simply entering your year, make, and model. Ford remotes most commonly use a CR2032 or CR2025 battery. Most key fob batteries cost less than $6 and are available for purchase online.
For newer Ford models, insert the hidden key into a designated slot to open the case. For older Ford 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 Ford key fob on our YouTube page. If you cannot find your specific Ford 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 Ford key fob's battery does not resolve your issue, you may need to replace your Ford key fob entirely.
If your Ford key fob is broken, you have various options for replacements depending on 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 Ford logo, an aftermarket case is also an option. If the key fob is severely damaged beyond the key blade or case, then a complete Ford key fob replacement will be necessary.
If your Ford key fob is misplaced or irreparably damaged, the only solution is to order a replacement key fob. Depending on the model and make, brand-new replacement key fobs can cost you $200 or more. At Keyless Entry Remote, you can get a refurbished Ford key fob for up to 80% less than the cost of new.
Once you receive your replacement Ford key fob, your remote will need to be programmed and the key will need to be cut. Some key fobs are easy to program by yourself, but other remotes need to be taken to an automotive locksmith to be programmed.
To find out if you can DIY program your remote or if you need a professional, look up your key fob programming instructions here. If you need an automotive professional to program your key fob, find a trusted locksmith on our Locksmith Locator page.
