Which Battery Goes in the INFINITI Key Fob?

Before you can replace your key fob battery, you’ll want to make sure that you have the correct replacement battery on hand. The type of key fob you have will dictate the battery you need. A regular INFINITI Key Fob will require a CR2025 type battery while a key fob that’s been designed to work with INFINITI Intelligent key requires a CR2032 battery instead. Your owner’s manual can tell you which battery your INFINITI key fob needs, or you can bring your old battery to a Dunlap parts store to find a replacement.

INFINITI Key Battery Replacement Steps

Now that you have the right INFINITI key battery replacement, you can learn how to replace an INFINITI key fob battery so you can get back on Athens roads with ease. Follow the steps below to get started:

  1. Press the release tab on the back of your key fob to remove the metal car key.
  2. Once you have removed the metal key and the release tab, you will need to pry open the small panel that’s situated underneath. At this point, you should see the INFINITI key fob battery housing. We suggest using a flathead screwdriver with a small amount of tape around the end to avoid scratching or damaging your fob in the process.
  3. Replace the dead battery with a fresh one, making sure to position the positive side face-down in the fob.
  4. Reattach the small panel that you removed earlier in the process and then reinsert the metal key along with the release tab.
  5. You’re ready to drive!

INFINITI Key Fob Troubleshooting

If you notice a problem with your push-button start or your key fob keyless entry remote, these tips and tricks can help you get on the road quickly or troubleshoot the problem:

  • If your vehicle isn’t starting, the battery in your key fob might be low. Try holding the key fob closer to the start button to reduce the energy needed to send a signal.
  • If you can’t start your car using push-button start, the problem could extend beyond your key fob battery. Try replacing the INFINITI key battery first, but if that doesn’t solve the problem, you will need to schedule a service appointment to have your vehicle’s battery checked.
  • If your INFINITI key battery is dead, you can use the metal key in the back of your key fob to start your vehicle and lock and unlock the doors.
