WHEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY CADILLAC KEY FOB BATTERY?

Not sure when you should be replacing the battery in your Cadillac key fob? Keep an eye out for some of these low-battery warning signs while driving through Minnetonka:

  • Difficult to Start: Does it take several minutes for your Cadillac sedan or SUV to turn on? Are you having to push your keyless start button several times for the engine to engage? If so, this is likely an indicator of a low battery within your key fob.
  • Unable to Open/Lock Doors: If you are unable to lock and unlock your doors or employ the panic alarm, this is a sure sign that your Cadillac key fob battery is in need of a replacement.

HOW TO OPEN A CADILLAC KEY FOB

Before replacing your Cadillac key fob battery, you’ll first need to open the key fob. Luckily, the process is quite simple and can be completed in just a few minutes. Follow these steps to learn how to open a Cadillac key fob:

  1. Find the release button on the key fob. It should be on the side.
  2. When you press this button, it should release the emergency key.
  3. Take out the emergency key, and set it aside.
  4. Find the narrow groove on your key fob.
  5. Using the emergency key or a small screwdriver, wedge the groove on the key fob until it opens.

Once the key fob is open, you can now go about replacing the battery. If you need any new key parts or parts in general, you can conveniently order parts online at Morrie's Golden Valley Cadillac.
