The Acura ILX is a subcompact executive car that has been in production since 2012. This vehicle was Acura’s first ever hybrid. The ILX uses 3 different key fobs: the “Smart 5-button”, “Smart 4-Button”, and the “Silver Sides” key fob — all of which take a CR2032 battery.

What you will need:
• 1x CR2032 battery
• Flat-head screwdriver

Start by removing the internal key from the device. On the bottom of the key fob, there is a space between the metal key ring and the edge of the back half of the key fob. Take your flat-head screwdriver and insert it into this area then carefully twist. The key fob will come apart.

Now, take your tool and gently pry the battery out. Take a new CR2032 battery and put it face-up into place. Finally, click the two halves of the key fob back together. That’s it, your key fob is good to go!
