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.

How to replace the xA (2004-2006) key fob battery

The key to opening the fob is the small notch on the top of the remote. You’ll need a flathead screwdriver to leverage the two parts of the fob apart at this point.

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