We offer keyless fob battery replacement service at Libertyville Chevrolet. This is a straightforward service that we complete by taking apart the fob and installing the right battery. You don’t have to attempt this on your own, risk breaking it, nor waste time searching for the specialized battery needed when we can get it done for you quickly and conveniently at Libertyville Chevrolet.
Chevrolet keyless fobs have changed over the years but rest assured that they all have batteries that will require replacement. Older fobs with remote entry, locking, and panic functions require a battery to function properly just like newer fobs that have added remote starting. Keyless fobs with dead batteries will not work at all. Be sure to replace the battery if the fob experiences a performance decline or the dashboard warning indicator signals that the battery is low.
Predicting how long a keyless fob battery will last is nearly impossible according to time. This is because the battery’s life is based on use and not time. Using it more frequently will cause it to have a shorter life. This is why it is important to replace the battery if it shows signs of performance decline in older fobs or the dashboard indicator is on for newer fobs.
Newer models with keyless fob security rely on the battery to start the engine. You might not be able to start the car if the battery’s voltage gets too low and the security feature cannot detect the fob inside the cabin. If the low battery indicator is on, you should replace the keyless fob’s battery immediately to prevent the hassle of an engine that won’t start due to the security feature. The indicator light does not influence driveability until the battery dies, but be sure to replace the battery promptly when the warning system detects reduced battery voltage.
Keyless fob battery replacement is about installing a brand new battery. This involves taking the fob apart, removing the old battery, and installing a brand new battery. A specialized battery is required matching specifications. You don’t have to fuss with matching battery part numbers nor taking the keyless fob apart on your own when you can get the service completed according to certified standards quickly at Libertyville Chevrolet.
