How to change battery in keyless entry remote

For a 2008 Prius the "Best Solution" and "#2" are WRONG! If you pry it appart, that does not release the battery, and you have to glue it back together. There is a sliding cover, the piece with the Toyota logo on it. It is released by the same spring loaded locking slider that releases the "valet key". The cover slides in the direction of the bottom of the logo. Then there are four phillips head screws (jeweler screwdriver size) that open the battery cover. The battery is type CR2032.

I have a 2005 Prius. These have a silver Toyota logo on back and they open as Solution#4 indicates. Do not pry. Just use the valet key release and slide the cover up toward the release. Use the logo for traction to push up.

Apparently, there may be two main types of Toyota Prius key fobs. One opens by sliding the logo panel revealing four tiny cross head screws. The other, that snaps apart by prying it with the key. The problem is that if you pry apart the one with the sliding panel, you will have to find a suitable glue to hold it back together. And, you still have to remove the sliding panel to replace the batteries. So be careful and try to see if you have a sliding panel before you try to pry it apart, like I sadly did.

Hello, I have changed many batteries in auto remotes. Most of them take the CR-2023 battery and you can see the number on the battery when you get it out. To remove it, you should see a little slot in the seam of the remote and you can pry it open with a screwdriver that fits the slot well. You don't want to use a dime or something else that doesn't fit well, because you could sort of smear or damage the nice edges on the slot and make it harder to open. Pry gently and it should open.

You will need to use a small jewlers screw driver to pry the 2 halves apart. It is a tough split but they will come apart. If you go to Auto Zone or Walmart, at the watch department, they will most likely have these at the counter for you to use. Once you replace them just align everything and press the 2 halves back together.

SOURCE: Driver 2 Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) not working, Driver 1 is OK

To resynchronize your transmitter, stand close to your vehicle and press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter at the same time for seven seconds. The door locks should cycle to confirm synchronization. If the locks do not cycle, see your dealer for service.   I hope this works and good luck

2003 crown vic keyfob only works with ignition in run position .keyless entry and door locks work fine.even tried new keyfob.no change


The keyless entry system consists of the following components:
  • driver door module (DDM)
  • keyless entry transmitter
  • keyless entry keypad
The driver door module (DDM) receives inputs from the digital transmission range (TR) sensor, ignition switch, brake switch, window/door lock switches, lighting control module (LCM), keyless entry keypad switch and remote transmitter. The DDM outputs consists of keyless entry keypad switch illumination, power door lock actuators, luggage compartment release solenoid, horn relay, and lighting control module (LCM).
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuses:
    • circuit breaker 7 (20A)
  • Central junction box (CJB)
    • 4 (10A)
    • 6 (15A)
    • 8 (25A)
    • 13 (5A)
  • Keyless entry keypad switch
  • Power door lock actuator
  • Luggage compartment release switch
  • Luggage compartment release solenoid
  • Connectors or connections
  • Wiring harness
  • If fuse's good have checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
  • B1526 Keyless Entry Circuit Short to Ground DDM Go To Pinpoint Test E . B1553 Decklid Release Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test B . B1751 Park/Neutral Switch Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test K . B2425 Remote Keyless Entry Out of Synchronization DDM Go To Pinpoint Test L Need a professional grade scan tool to check fro these codes . Not a code reader for OBD2 codes .
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter not programmed.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • DDM.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test F .

Did you program the new key fob ?

Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to RUN four times within three seconds, ending in RUN. The locks will then lock and unlock, confirming program mode has been entered.
  1. Press any button on each remote transmitter to be programmed. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
  1. If additonal remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 3 within 7.5 seconds or steps 2 and 3 if more than 7.5 seconds have elapsed.
  1. To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.
  1. NOTE: Failure to wait at least 20 seconds will cause programming failures. Wait at least 20 seconds after turning the key to OFF or after the last remote transmitter has been programmed to activate a remote transmitter for testing or verification

How do i program remote keyless entry? I replaced the battery and keyless entry quit working,


You don't normally program a keyless entry, that's done for you by the technicians that install that. If the replaced battery doesn't solve the problem, take the battery and the remote to the techies that installed it.

You can take it back to the dealer, and have them change the battery, or go to Autozone, buy the battery and do it yourself. They can show you how to do it. And which battery it takes. It's not hard to do. Good luck.
