Whether your battery is dead or your key fob is misplaced, Ventura Toyota is here to get you back on Oxnard roads. In this guide, we’ll help you determine whether you need a total Toyota key fob replacement or a new Toyota key fob battery to get your car back in top shape. Take a look at our top tips and tricks from the service department, and be sure to contact us with any questions.

Dead Toyota Key Fob Battery

If your key fob worked well and abruptly stopped, you’re probably in need of a Toyota key fob battery replacement. While replacing your battery is simple, you’ll need to determine which Toyota key fob battery matches your key fob.

  • Open your key fob with the built-in key or use a thin, strong object to pop open the case.
  • Gently lift the circuit board to reveal the battery.
  • Write down what kind of battery you see and pay attention to how it sits in the case. Most Toyotas use a CR2032 battery, which is found in our parts department.
  • Once you have a replacement battery, replace the dead battery with a fresh battery and close the key fob case.
  • Test the key fob to make sure that it works.

If your Toyota key fob still doesn’t work, open the case again and adjust the battery. Make sure that the connections are clean and sitting against the battery. If you still run into issues, you might need a Toyota key fob replacement instead.

Broken Toyota Key Fob

If your Toyota key fob is broken in some way, our service department can help you out.

  • If you damaged the hidden key, you can get a new key cut at a local Toyota service center and continue using the key fob as usual.
  • If the key fob case itself is broken without damage to the electronics, you can simply purchase a replacement case.
  • If you’ve seriously damaged the key fob with liquids or physical damage, you might need a total Toyota key fob replacement.

Toyota Key Fob Replacement

If you’ve lost or damaged your key in Santa Barbara, you can order a Toyota key fob replacement. However, new key fobs can be pricey – between $200 to $350 on average. That’s because your Toyota key fob is customized to your model, so it needs to include specialized electronics that work with your exact Toyota model. Our service department can help you find the Toyota key replacement that you need, so feel free to contact us for recommendations.
