2014 Juke Key Fob

Remove Phillips Head Screw
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and also the refreshed 2015 & 2016) Nissan Juke in changing the battery in the key fob remote control.

Owners of other Nissan vehicles such as the Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Cube, Leaf, Pathfinder, 370Z, Rogue, Xterra, Murano, Armada, Quest, Frontier and Titan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement "coin" cell (A.K.A. "button" or "watch") battery is part number CR1620 which is available from manufacturers such as Sony, Panasonic, Duracell, Energizer, Maxell and Philips.

Update - Another Juke owner informed me that his 2011 model year was equipped with the larger CR2032 battery. Please check the old battery in your key fob before you purchase a new one.

The tools needed to replace the battery include a small Phillips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver.

Small Phillips Head Screw
Pry Apart Two Halves
Key Fob Cover Removed
The first two steps are to turn over the key fob and locate the small Phillips head screw.

Remove the screw by turning it counterclockwise with a small Phillips head screwdriver.

Set the screw aside in a safe place.

Then insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch on the top edge near the metal ignition key and next to the "Lock" button.

Gently pry apart the two halves of the key fob.

Carefully pull the old battery out of the back cover of the key fob.

You may need to use the small flathead screwdriver to pry out the old battery.

Try to avoid damaging the metal electrical contacts with the screwdriver.

Test New Key Fob Battery
Line up the back cover with the front of the key fob and gently snap them together.

Re-insert the screw and tighten it in the clockwise direction with the small Phillips head screwdriver.

Test the new key fob battery by standing near your Juke and pressing the "Unlock" or "Lock" buttons.

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