Hello everyone. In this video, I will show you how to change the internal battery in an Acura ILX key Fob. This key Fob was used between 2016 and 2020 and uses a CR 2032, a battery. You can change it at your battery at home. It's really easy.

Just get yourself one of these 2032 batteries. I left a link in the YouTube description to buy one on Amazon. It's really cheap. And then you can just follow along. First step, pull on this little lever on the front of the key Fob.

Hold it down to release the internal key. Set that aside now and you see this little piece of metal for the keyring. We're going to use that to separate the two halves of this key Fob. So locate the back of the key Fob here and we're going to put our tool in between. You see there's a little groove between this piece of metal and a lip on the back side.

We're going to insert a tool into there. And once you feel that it's kind of secure between those two pieces going to firmly but gently twist. You'll hear a little pop. You can see we're starting to create some separation. Now.

We're just going to come in on the side doing the same thing. Just twisting. Work your way down and twist until you feel the two halves come apart from here, I'm actually going to use more delicate tools. You don't want to damage anything in here. You can keep using whatever flathead you have or you can even use your fingernail.

But we're going to come in on this side of the battery and get under it and just kind of twist or pry it out. Just being gentle. Let's try to get under the battery and just pull up like that. You can see the battery will come out very easily. Take a new CR 2032.

Make sure the positive side of the battery information is facing up like this and slide it in. Click down. You can see it sits in there nicely. It's secure, and you're pretty much done. Just click these two pieces back together.

Put your key back in and you can see that the light comes on. Meaning we're all done.

Hey, everyone. In this video, I'll show you how to change the internal battery in an Acura ILX key Fob. This key Fob was used between 2015 and 2020 and uses a CR 2032 battery. Changing the internal terminal battery is very easy. Just takes a couple of steps.

All you'll need is one of these batteries. And I've left a link in the YouTube description if you'd like to buy one on Amazon, it's just a couple of dollars and you can do the whole process by yourself at home. So first step, push the little lever on the back to release the internal key. And now you can see this metal bank with a keyring. We're going to take a flathead screwdriver, locate the back of the key Fob.

That's the front, locate the back. And we're going to put this tool between this metal component and the little groove that you'll see here on the back side. So if you just watch, I'm going to push it down till it kind of secures in place between this edge and this piece of metal. And once that's secure, I'm just going to gently twist, hold it firmly and twist. There we go.

Just until it starts to open up on the side. Don't want to damage the plastic, so just be gentle. Twist. And now that you have this opening, put your tool in and just work your way down the side. Insert twist, and it will come apart like that.

So once you've made that opening twist, twist pops out. Here is our CR 2032 battery. From here, it's very easy to just take your tool, kind of get it under the battery and just try to pry it out. Being gentle actually going to go ahead, take a smaller tool. You could maybe use your fingernail or whatever size tool works for you.

And there we go. Just twisting and rocking. You can release the battery. Now, take a fresh CR 2032 battery. Insert it with the positive side with this text.

Make sure that's facing up like so and just slide it under these little pieces of plastic here. First, this direction before clicking into place there, make sure it's secure. Now we just click these two pieces back together.

There we go. Put this back in and you can see that the light comes on, meaning you did everything correctly. If this video helped you out, feel free to like or comment.
