When to Make a Porsche Key Fob Battery Replacement

You might find your Porsche key fob isn’t working as it should do next time you’re running errands in Staten Island, NY or meeting clients in Westfield. When that happens, you’ll almost certainly need to do nothing more than change the battery.

Just a few warning signs include:

  • Difficulty Starting: If starting takes multiple attempts, the battery in your key fob could be low.
  • Problems Locking and Unlocking: If your battery is on its way out, you may lose the ability to lock and unlock your doors.
  • Dashboard Warning: Losing battery power in your key fob often causes a warning sign to light up on your dashboard.

How to Open a Porsche Key Fob and Change the Battery

You can find the right Porsche key fob battery type by checking your owner’s manual or looking online. Once you have it, simply follow these steps:

  • Push the release button found on the bottom of the key, pressing away from the rest of the fob. This will remove the emergency key.
  • Pull the emergency key out, lifting it against the plastic casing to free it from the fob.
  • Remove the old battery, then insert the new one. Check your new battery is facing the right way.
  • Put the cover back, then press the fob together into its original place.
  • Insert the emergency key back in its place.
