Acura has been providing an electronic key fob with their cars in one form or another for many years. However, the battery in the key fob can only last so long before it will need to be replaced. While you can easily get a replacement key at Proctor Acura, there is no reason to replace the entire key fob just because the battery is low or dead. The battery can be easily replaced in just a few simple steps.
Care must be taken when prying the two halves apart as it is very easy to damage the plastic housing. Never use a screwdriver in the slot that is visible slot on the side of the key fob as this can cause damage to the key fob. Always be sure the battery is installed with the positive side up or your key fob will not work. If you are not sure how to replace the battery or are uncomfortable doing so, bring your key fob to the parts department at your Acura dealer and one of our expert parts specialists will be happy to do the job for you.
