Replacing A Smart Key Battery
If you have a BMW Smart Key, then you will have to head out to purchase a CR2450 battery. Then, remove the metal key blade from the key fob and remove the back cover. Then, take out the old battery and replace it with the new CR2450 battery. Put the cover back on and place the metal key blade back into its position. All done!
Replacing A Comfort Access Key Battery
Many BMW models including the 1, 3, 5, 7, X3, X5, and X6 series use the Comfort Access BMW Key. You will need to replace the battery with a CR2032 battery. Begin by pressing the small tab in the key fob and remove the valet key with a tug. Once you’ve removed the valet key, you will notice a small access port. Remove the key battery cover using the valet key or a flat screwdriver. Remove the old battery and insert the new CR2032 battery, then put the cover back on and attach the valet key back.
Replacing A Non-Comfort Access Key Battery
The BMW key with a side indent is the Non-Comfort Access Key, which comes with a rechargeable battery. This key charges when it is in the ignition but it can completely die after about 10 years of use. Replacing the battery will require cutting a part of the key, so consider hiring a qualified locksmith or replacing the key altogether.
Replacing A Sleek Slant Shaped Key Battery
Many BMW F-Series models between 2011 and 2017 use the sleek slant shaped key battery. This key uses the CR2032 battery. To replace it, push the button to remove the valet key and notice the small groove in the opening. Use the valet key or a screwdriver to turn the groove clockwise then remove the battery cover. Finally, replace the dead battery with a new CR2032 battery. Don’t forget to put the parts back together afterwards.
