How do I replace the battery in the key fob for my Ford?

For instructions on how to replace the coin-type three-volt lithium battery in your key fob, refer to your ​Owner's Manual​ under "Keys and Remote Control."


  • Replacing the battery does not erase the programmed key from the vehicle. 
  • Do not wipe off any grease on the battery terminals or on the back surface of the circuit board.
  • Refer to local regulations when disposing of batteries.

If you need assistance, take all your keys to your Ford Dealer.
