Unsure how to replace your Jaguar key fob battery? Rumson drivers can follow these steps courtesy of Jaguar Monmouth to ensure a smooth key fob battery replacement! Jaguar Monmouth is here to help with all your service needs, learn more about how to replace your key fob battery by watching this short video.

When to Replace Your Jaguar Key Fob Battery

It’s important to replace your Jaguar key fob battery when necessary to ensure easy entry to your Jaguar vehicle. You’ll notice that the battery is low and in need of replacement when there is a decrease in effective range of the key fob. The message center may also display SMART KEY BATTERY LOW to let you know that that a Jaguar key fob battery replacement is necessary.

Steps for Jaguar Key Fob Battery Replacement

Follow these steps for Jaguar key fob battery replacement:

  • Slide the key fob cover to release it, and then pull it to remove.
  • Use the emergency key blade to separate the body of the key fob.
  • Insert a new CR2032 battery with the positive side upwards. These can be find at an authorized Jaguar dealer such as Jaguar Monmouth.
  • Refit the parts, making sure they click securely into place.

Tips for Key Fob Battery Replacement

Here are some tips for Colts Neck drivers as they conduct a key fob battery replacement:

  • Handle only the outer edge of a new battery. Touching the top and bottom faces may reduce battery life and corrode the contacts.
  • If the low battery warning does not disappear, it may mean the replacement battery is not in new and unused condition.

How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Key Fob?

If your key fob battery replacement doesn’t go as planned, it might be your key fob itself that’s causing the problem. The days of making replacement vehicle keys at your local hardware store are more or less firmly in the past. These days, drivers with the latest vehicles will need to order a replacement key fob directly through the dealership—but how much does it cost to replace a key fob anyway?

  • Smart keys with proximity detection—like those you’ll receive with most new Jaguar vehicles—can cost anywhere between $150 and $600 to replace, depending on the type of car you drive.
  • Vehicles with smart keys are much harder to steal, but they are also more expensive to build. What’s more, they will need to be programmed by an authorized service provider. These factors account for the higher cost.
  • How much does it cost to replace a key fob for an older Jaguar vehicle? It depends, but the cost is usually much lower here. Expect to pay between $50 and $200, depending on the model in question.

For security reasons, new Jaguar key fobs are generally only available through an authorized dealership! Contact us today if you have any questions or would like to place an order.
