How do you change the battery on the switchblade style key fob for an 07 MDX? I had it open and I got it to the button box thing but wasn't sure if it comes apart. It looks sealed, and I don't want to break it. Any info would be great.
That was perfect, thankyou. Of course I should have looked there first since it is a freakin book! LOL. Its only a small 1616 watch type battery, I thought it might be more than that. No biggie; may be more of a problem asking the dealer about it, unless a new battery does not fix it.
Speaking of, I thought my car had a nasty rattle in the dash. I poked around and found that it was my key. On further examination, I tightened the screw to the battery compartment and sun of a gun, problem solved!
I, too, didn't want to open the button assembly. Glad I checked here and found the user manual reference. Lucky that I had a cr1616 in the battery drawer, I'd asked my service advisor if cr32 would be the right size.
I thought the trickiest part was reassembling the case - that wierd nut that the screw bites into fell out and I had a heckuva time repositioning it.
Its pretty easy once you read the manual:-) Our 2011 key fob went dead after only 6 months... My fault though as my wallet was pushing the button for the whole day while i was in brooklyn one weekend. Anyway i read that the sony replacement batteries are the best i replaced mine with that. So far so good.
