What Kind of Battery Goes in the INFINITI Key Fob?

Before you begin, you’ll want to make sure that you have the correct replacement battery on hand. The standard INFINITI key fob requires a CR2025 type battery, which can be purchased online or at your local Naperville INFINITI parts department. A key fob that’s been designed to work with INFINITI Intelligent key requires a CR2032 battery instead. Contact INFINITI of Naperville or consult your owner’s manual if you’re not sure which type to use.

Step by Step: INFINITI Key Battery Replacement

  1. Remove the metal car key by pressing the release tab on the back of your key fob
  2. After removing the metal key and the release tab, you’ll have to pry open the small panel that’s situated underneath. This will reveal the INFINITI key fob battery housing. Use a flathead screwdriver with a small amount of tape around the end to avoid scratching or damaging your fob in the process.
  3. Take out the dead battery and insert the new battery that you’ve acquired. Make sure to orient the battery correctly, or you’ll have to start over once you’ve finished. The positive side should be 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: Tips and Tricks

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 you’re having trouble starting your car, your key fob remote battery might just have low power. Try holding it against the start button and pressing again. Keeping them close can reduce the amount of power required to send a signal.
  • If you can’t start your car using push-button start, the problem may have its origin with either your key fob or your main battery. Try replacing the key battery first, but if that doesn’t solve the problem, you may need to schedule service to have your old battery replaced and disposed of.
  • If you need to start your car or unlock your doors, and your INFINITI key battery is dead, you can use the metal key in the back of your key fob.
