2019 Jeep Cherokee Key Fob Battery: Easy Replacement Guide

The telltale signs of a car key fob battery dying include unresponsive lock/unlock buttons and slow remote response. In this guide, we will walk you through the simple process of changing the key fob battery for a 2017 Jeep Cherokee.

Firstly, you’ll want to ensure you have the correct replacement battery. For this model, a CR2032 is used. Additionally, if your Cherokee has a message on the cluster warning about a low key fob battery, it’s a good indicator that the battery needs to be replaced.

To get started, you’ll need a new battery and a flat screwdriver. Follow these steps to change the key fob battery:

  1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob by holding the spring-loaded button and pulling it out.
  2. Insert the tip of the flathead screwdriver near the mechanical key slot and gently twist it to pry it open, lifting the frame.
  3. Continue to pry off the frame carefully.
  4. Lift off the rubber pad containing the board that holds the battery.
  5. Take out the board from the keypad and insert the new battery, ensuring the side with the plus sign is facing up.
  6. Place the board back in the rubber keypad and then put it back in the casing.
  7. Reattach the outer frame, making sure it’s well in place.
  8. Finally, reinsert the mechanical key.

Once you’ve followed these steps, your key fob battery replacement is complete. We hope this guide has been helpful. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask in the comments. Check the description for links to tools and materials used in this process. Thank you for watching!
