I have two Toyotas and both of their keys start flaking out in the 4 to 5 year time frame. One of the cars is a 2009 Scion xB. Changing the battery is something a user can do but there are a few things to be careful about. Before disassembling make sure you are not in an area that can generate static electricity otherwise you risk blowing out your remote circuit. Lay out a sheet of aluminum foil and do all your work on it so that everything is at the same voltage potential. 1) remove the key from any keychain. 2) Near the keychain side of the key is a tiny slot on the edge. If you put a small blade screwdriver in this slot and twist it will pop of the case cover of your key's remote electronics. 3) The electronics module is inside the key with it's own plastic housing which pops right out of the key shell. 4) Once you have the module out notice that one side is black plastic while the other side is clear plastic. There are five edges to the module and on one corner is a small clear plastic tab protruding up. To the right of the tab is a hard to see but small slot where you must insert a small screwdriver to gently separate the tab underneath. At the same time, pull upward on the protruding tab and the clear plastic shell with the electronics should start to come out. Once apart the battery is visible, a CR 2016 watch battery, available usually at Target, Wal-Mart or any electronics store for ~ $2. Install the new battery and reverse the procedure and you should be good to go.
If it is the same as the 2007 model.
The top of the key is a small slide switch.
You slide it and pull a vanity key out.If the glovebox has been locked it also possibly locks the boot with the same switch.
You will probably need to put key in glovebox lock and turn counter clockwise.
That key is to lock the seats to stop anyone getting into the boot via the fold down system as well.
Unfortunately, there are no remote codes available for Disney electronics because the company that actually manufactured the TVs and DVD players carrying the Disney name was a no name company that didn't bother working with the companies that manufacture universal and cable remotes.
