In our article today, we are going to show you easy steps on how to change battery in Nissan key fob. It’s so easy that you can do it, without having to visit an auto mechanic. So let’s get started…
How To Change Battery In Nissan Key Fob
Step 1: Gently pry the key fob open with a flat head screwdriver.

Step 2: Slide the rubber gasket and metal plate out of the key fob.
Once you’ve gotten the battery out of the key fob, you’ll need to remove a few pieces before your new battery will fit. First, slide the rubber gasket and metal plate out of the key fob. This is not visible from outside of the car, so you’ll have to feel around for it. The gasket and metal plate are held in place by a small amount of adhesive that remains on their undersides; once freed from their holding chamber, they should pop right out with minimal effort or pulling (you might want to use a pair of blunt needle-nose pliers).
Step 3: Remove the battery from it’s slot by gently sliding it out.
This step is a bit tricky, since there are several different types of batteries. Here are some things to keep in mind when removing the battery:
- If the battery is held in by a metal plate, you will need to gently pry it out using a screwdriver or other small flat object. Make sure not to bend or scratch the key fob case!
- The rubber gasket may be hard to remove depending on how much wear and tear it has endured over its lifetime. You might want to apply gentle pressure with your fingers while pulling on the key fob case itself.
- Some keys have two separate pieces that hold the batteries in place—the metal plate and rubber gasket method mentioned above, as well as another piece that clips onto each side of your key (like an older car door lock). You’ll have to carefully remove both sides before sliding out your new battery
Step 4: Install the new battery in the same spot where you removed the old one from.
Once the new battery is in place, it’s time to test your work. You’ll want to make sure that:
- The battery is installed with the correct polarity (labeled on the side)
- The battery fits securely into its compartment and doesn’t move around when you press down on it
- The wires are not touching any metal or other batteries inside of your key fob
Step 5: Replace the gasket and metal plate back on top of the key fob.
Step 5: Replace the gasket and metal plate back on top of the key fob.
Make sure they are seated properly so that there are no gaps where water could get in and damage your new battery.
Step 6: Carefully snap the key fob back together
Carefully snap the key fob back together. Be careful not to break the gasket or metal plate that’s stuck in between, and also be careful not to break the battery itself.
Changing your own car battery can save you money and hassle.
Changing your own car battery can save you money, time and hassle. You can easily change the battery in your key fob yourself with a few tools that you probably already have at home or in your car.
The best way to start is by reading the instructions that came with your new battery. Even if it’s a little different from how I do it here (and it will be different), following those instructions first will make sure that everything gets done correctly and safely.

How To Care For Your Nissan Car
If you really love your Nissan car and want it to be in good condition always then you should carry out the following maintenance practices:
Get fast oil changes
To keep your Nissan in tip-top shape, you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles. Make sure you use the right kind of oil and filter for your car and that they are installed correctly. Most people who do their own auto repairs will be able to install the parts themselves, but if you’re not comfortable doing this task, take it to a local mechanic or shop to have it done for you. Afterward, dispose of used oil and filters properly so they don’t end up in our landfills or waterways.
Keep the engine clean and lubricated
The engine is one of the most important parts of your car. It keeps you moving and going places, so it needs to be kept clean and lubricated, protected from the elements and corrosion, tuned regularly and protected from rocks or other debris hitting it. If this portion of your vehicle isn’t taken care of properly, you could end up having to replace it before its time.
Check the tire pressure regularly
The proper tire pressure is crucial to your Nissan’s performance and safety. If you drive on low-pressure tires, you’ll wear them out faster and won’t be able to control your vehicle as well. You should always keep your tires inflated at the recommended level by checking the manual that came with your Nissan or asking a mechanic at an auto parts store or dealership. Most manufacturers recommend inflating tires to between 30 and 35 pounds per square inch (psi).
Here are some ways you can tell if you need to check your tire pressure more often:
- Tire feels soft when driving over bumps or potholes
- Your car shakes when driving down the road
- When pulling into a gas station, it feels like one of the tires isn’t touching the ground
Get regular tune ups
Tune-ups are a good way to maintain your car’s performance and keep it running smoothly. Tune-ups typically include spark plug replacement, air filter replacement and an oil change.
- Spark plugs: The spark plugs ignite the fuel in your engine so that it can burn efficiently. If these are not functioning properly, your car may run rough or not at all.
- Air filter: This keeps dirt and debris out of your engine so that it can run more smoothly. This also helps you save gas by reducing drag on the engine mechanics as they work to get power from the pistons inside the engine block or cylinder head(s).
- Oil change: You need oil to lubricate all moving parts within the engines’ internal combustion chambers so that they don’t wear away prematurely due to friction against each other
Do a visual inspection regularly
- Check the engine oil.
- Check the tire pressure.
- Check the coolant level and top off as needed.
- Check the brake fluid level and top off as needed.
- Check the windshield washer fluid level and top off as needed.
Other things to check include:
- Belts and hoses (including timing belt) for wear or damage. Replace as necessary, following manufacturer’s guidelines for your vehicle type and year model car in particular; if unsure, contact a professional mechanic who specializes in Nissan cars before attempting this yourself! You may also want to consider having an expert inspect your car’s belts every few years even if they don’t appear worn or damaged—better safe than sorry!
To keep your car running efficiently and safely, you should follow the recommended maintenance schedule for your vehicle as outlined in your owner’s manual (or schedule an appointment with us). This includes getting oil changes every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or as specified by the manufacturer.
The most important maintenance item of your vehicle is an oil change. Changing the oil regularly will keep your engine operating at peak performance, helping to prevent wear and tear and keep it running efficiently. The importance of oil changes cannot be overstated as they are the lifeblood of your engine, lubricating and cooling it while also keeping it clean by removing sludge from inside the engine. If you do not follow this recommendation, you risk damaging your engine components which will result in costly repairs down the road!
Your car will run better and last longer if you give it regular maintenance
As a Nissan owner, it’s important to keep your car in good condition. Regular maintenance helps you keep your vehicle running at its best and will save you money in the long run.
You can do this yourself or have a professional do it for you:
Oil changes are an essential part of routine maintenance for any car, but especially for a new vehicle like the Nissan Leaf. If you’re not sure what model year your car is, check online or ask at the dealership—this information will be useful when buying replacement filters and other parts as well, since some parts may not come with explicit instructions on how to install them into different models from different years. You can also talk with friends who own similar cars about what types of oil and filters they use; most mechanics agree that synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional motor oils (and costs more), so if possible choose this option!
