When to Conduct a Jaguar Key Fob Battery Replacement 

There are a couple of indicators that will help Fort Lee drivers know it’s time for a Jaguar key fob replacement. For one, your Message Center will send you an alert stating that your “smart key battery is low.” Or, your Jaguar key fob won’t be as effective. 

How to Open a Jaguar Key Fob 

Before you conduct your Jaguar key fob replacement, you need to open it first. Here’s how to open a Jaguar key fob:

  1. Remove your Jaguar key fob cover by pressing a button on the side of your fob to release the cover.
  2. Slide it back and pull it off. This will expose your emergency key.
  3. Turn the key so that it points in the same direction as the arrow.
  4. Remove it and use it to pry the key fob body off of the panel that conceals the battery.

How to Replace a Dead Jaguar Key Fob Battery 

Once you’ve reached the battery, you’ll want to make sure you have the proper battery on hand. The battery found in a Jaguar key fob is a CR2032. From there, here’s how to replace a dead Jaguar key fob battery:

  1. Remove the old battery, and as you do so, press the upper positive terminal until it touches the negative grid. After recovering the terminal position, the positive contact should be firm with the upper terminal.
  2. Place the new battery in with the positive side turned upward. Then, put your key fob back together. 
  3. If your vehicle has passive entry, wait 10 minutes for the battery to recharge before you use the key.
