2014 Santa Fe Key Fob
Press Chrome Silver Button
Release Metal Ignition Key
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and probably also the refreshed 2017 model year) Hyundai Santa Fe in changing a dead battery in the key fob remote control for the keyless entry system.

Owners of other Hyundai or Kia vehicles such as the Optima, Cadenza, K900, Sorento, Sportage, Sedona, Soul, Elantra, Veloster, Sonata, Azera, Tucson, Forte, Genesis, Cerato, Spectra, Accent, Sephia, i20, i30, ix35, i40 and Equus may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement coin cell (A.K.A. "button" or "watch") battery is part number CR2032 which are available from various manufacturers such as Panasonic, Sony, Energizer, Duracell, and Maxell.

No tools are required to access and replace the key fob battery.

Pull Off Battery Cover
Battery Cover Removed
Pry Out Old Battery
The first two steps are to locate the chrome silver button on the front of the key fob and press it to release the metal ignition key.

Insert your thumb in to the slot where the metal ignition key used to reside and firmly pull off the rear cover.

Set the battery cover aside in a safe place.

Gently pry out the old CR2032 battery from the holder with your finger nail or very carefully use a small flathead screwdriver.

Old Battery Removed
Panasonic CR2032 3 Volt
Install New CR 2032
Push a new # CR2032 3 volt coin cell battery in to the socket with the "+" positive side facing up and the "-" negative side facing down.
Line Up Rear Cover
Snap On Battery Cover
Test New Key Fob Battery
Line up the battery cover and firmly snap it back in to place.

To test the new key fob battery, stand near your Santa Fe and press the "Unlock" or "Lock" buttons.

If the new battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash and also hear the door locks opening or closing.
