Combo Car Key / Key Fob
Turn Over Key Fob
Single Small Phillips Screw
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013) Nissan Rogue in changing the battery in the combination car key and keyless entry remote control unit.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Cube, Sentra, Altima, LEAF, Maxima, Juke, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder, Armada, Quest, Frontier, Titan, 370Z, G37, M37, EX37, FX37, JX35, and QX56 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement coin, "button" or "watch" cell battery is part # CR1620 from manufacturers such as Sony, Panasonic, Energizer, Duracell, Maxell and Lenmar.

The only tools needed to change the fob battery are a small jewelers #0 Phillips head screwdriver and a small flathead screwdriver.

Remove Phillips Screw
Single Screw Removed
Notch Near Metal Key
Turn over the key fob so that the buttons are facing down and remove the single screw with the small #0 Phillips head screwdriver by turning it counter clockwise.

I recommend buying a jewelers screwdriver set.

Set the screw aside in a safe place.

Pry Apart Two Halves
Key Fob Separated
Old Coin Cell Battery
Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch at the edge of the key fob close to the metal ignition key.

Gently pry apart the two halves of the key fob.


Pry Out Old Battery
Sony CR1620 3V Battery
Install New Battery "+" Down
Gently pry out the old coin cell battery out of the back cover of the key fob either with your finger nail or the small flathead screwdriver.

Try to avoid damaging the metal electrical contacts if you use the blade of the screwdriver to remove the battery.

New Battery In Place
Line Up Halves - Snap Together
Tighten Phillips Head Screw
Press a new CR1620 3 volt lithium battery in to the socket with the positive "+" side facing down.

Line up the back cover with the front half of the key fob and gently snap them together.

Make sure the fob is flush together all the way around.

Insert the Phillips head screw and tighten it with the screwdriver.

To test the new battery, stand next to your Rogue and press the "Lock" or "Unlock" buttons.

If the battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash and/or hear the horn beep.
