The keyless entrance system goes back to the 1980s, and today it’s hard to imagine owning a car without one. This keyless remote system or key fob uses an RFID to control the entry system of your car, lock it, and protect it from theft. It can also help you locate your vehicle from a distance.
For all these reasons, a key fob that doesn’t work can be a huge inconvenience. This is why in this article, I’ll teach you how to change battery in Nissan key fob in a few easy steps.
What Kind of Battery Does the Nissan Key Fob Use?
The Nissan key fob uses a CR2032 or CR2025 battery. Both are long-lasting, probably lasting for about ten years under normal conditions. They’re also quite affordable, easy to replace, and lightweight. The only difference is that the first one is slightly thicker than the other, so you need to check your user manual to be sure of the specific model.
However, these batteries are non-reusable, so when yours runs out, you have to replace it. Improper storage of the battery can make it run out sooner than expected.
