    Changing battery on key fob

    I am planning to change the battery on my key remote. No problems so far but it's been almost 10 yrs on the original one so I am trying to be proactive.

    Found this video on another thread.




    Will changing the battery require me to reprogram the key?

    No. The key, in fact does not get programmed at all. The car is actually programmed to work with the key(s).

    Yeah. I changed my batteries just the other day. I happened to have the same kind for my heart rate monitor. Just replace them and go.
