Scion xA Key Fob Battery Remote Replacement 2004, 2005, 2006

The small compact xA by Scion was only produced for a few years, but has a cult following of sorts. The model only has one key fob type, a remote entry no integrated key, 2-button fob. It takes a small CR2016 key battery. Here’s my guide to all Scion key batteries. This is my guide to replacing the battery in the xA key fob.

Here’s a quick video I made on how to replace the battery:
