Can I Replace the Batteries in My Scion Key Fob?
It’s possible to take the DIY approach if you need to replace the batteries on your Scion key fob. Much of it depends on what your fob looks like and if you have the replacement battery. Most models will take a CR2016 cell battery.
Your Scion should alert you that your battery is low so that you can take care of a replacement before it dies entirely.
You will need to use a flathead screwdriver in order to crack open the case of your fob. From there, you can remove the old battery and replace it with a new one. If the battery is dead for long, you may also need to have the fob reprogrammed.
The average battery will last for one to two years. If you always store your key fob in your Scion, it may die faster – which can leave you with the inability to start your ignition.
The best option is to let a professional locksmith change the battery. This way, we can take the necessary care to open the case. Plus, we can take care of any reprogramming that may need to happen.
How Much Does Scion Key & Key Fob Replacement Cost?
Depending on the model and model year of your Scion, the cost to replace a key fob at a dealership can be as much as $600. Much of this is because of the overhead costs of the dealership as well as the inexperience of the technicians.
Dealership technicians don’t handle key fob reprogramming very often, so it can take several hours for the service to take place. They charge by the hour, which means that you could have to spend more than what is actually necessary.
