How to replace the Jeep Cherokee “Teardrop” key fob battery (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021)

Scroll down to see a full video tutorial or keep reading for a step by step guide.

What you will need:

  • 1x CR2032 battery
  • Flat-head screwdriver

First, look at the bottom of the device where the keyring attaches. Notice the seam between the two halves of the key fob. Take your flathead screwdriver and carefully insert it into the seam, wiggling as you push. Once the tool is just inside, turn it like a key until the two halves of the device pop open. 

Set aside the plastic front of the key fob. Now, carefully remove the rubber piece (buttons) by simply lifting it up. Next, use your finger or screwdriver to lift the battery out of its housing gently. Take a new CR2032 battery and click it into place positive side down. Now, just set the rubber buttons back on top like before and click the front piece of plastic back into place. 

That’s all it takes. You just changed the battery at home and saved yourself a trip to the dealership. Nice work!
