Replace The Key Fob Battery on a 2018-up Toyota Camry
The Toyota Camry key fob is needed to lock, unlock, and start the vehicle. Unfortunately it doesn't give you any low battery warnings.
Luckily, replacing the battery is very simple task.
- Small prying tool like a flat head screw driver
Remove the Battery
For reference, here's what the key fob for our Camry looks like. Some trim lines have a keyless fob, but ours uses a key as shown below.
First, flip over the key fob and note the removable cover under the Toyota emblem.
Pry the cover off using a small flat head. There's a small indentation near the key ring loop. It doesn't take much force.
Remove the outer shell/cover.
Remove the orange silicone battery cover.
Remove the CR 2032 Battery.
Install a New Batter
Install a new CR2032 Battery.
The battery installs flat side up (as shown above). It's very easy, but it helps if you first insert the edge nearest the Toyota logo on the fob, then push the battery up and into the fob.
Install the orange rubber cover. The textured side goes down.
Install the battery cover. It just clips back into place. Just be careful not to break any of the little plastic tabs.
Test the fob by unlocking and locking the car.
