Interested in learning how to change the battery in a VW key fob? While the battery should last for years, this issue will come up at one point or another. And though our service team at Volkswagen South Coast near Irvine is more than happy to take care of this problem for you, you may want to know how to change the VW key fob battery replacement on your own. In order to do that, here’s what you’ll need to know.
It’s quite simple to learn how to change the battery in a VW key fob, but if you’re unsure which VW key battery to use, it can make things difficult. Here’s how to find the right product:
In order to get started on replacing the battery, you’ll need a small screwdriver and a new CR2032 battery. To avoid scratching and damaging your key fob, wrap the flat-head screwdriver with a small piece of tape. Now that you’re ready to get started, follow these steps:
If you find yourself with a dead key fob battery just as you’re about to get on the road, you can luckily start your vehicle without the Smart key. Thankfully, even older VW key fobs contain what’s usually referred to as an emergency key or a bayonet key. Even if your Volkswagen has a keyless entry or push button start feature, simply hold the emergency key below the ignition and this should allow you to start your engine.
If the battery isn’t the issue, or you’ve lost your key, don’t lose all hope. Car key replacements in Costa Mesa can be pricey, so you’ll want to make sure if you have a spare key that you keep it handy. If not, you’ll need a VW key replacement from a dealership. Make sure to bring your driver’s license and your proof of ownership before you drive in from Orange. If you’ve just picked up a new VW key fob, you’ll need to spend some time programming the key before it’ll work like new. We can help you take care of this at our VW service center once your key arrives.
