Even with light use, a key fob’s battery will run out after a few years of use. If your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s remote control battery has stopped working, it’s time to replace it.
What type of battery goes in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee key fob?
Most Jeep key fobs, including the Grand Cherokee, use a standard CR2032 lithium battery to operate them. It is a small, flat 3-volt battery that typically lasts three to four years with normal use.
Where can I find one and how much does it cost?
CR2032 batteries are cheap and plentiful. You can often find them in line at the grocery store or Walmart. Almost every retailer that sells batteries will have CR2032 on the shelf. If you are not in a hurry, you can order them on Amazon. All major battery companies including Duracell and Energizer do this.
The very good news is that it will be one of the cheapest “car repairs” ever. A CR2032 battery costs less than $2. You’ll often find them on sale in packs of two for less than $4, so if you have a second remote key for your Jeep Grand Cherokee, you can replace both batteries at the same time.
Steps to Replace the Key Fob Battery in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The outside of your Jeep keychain is just two pieces of plastic that fit together. Inside the keychain is a battery, a small circuit board, and a rubber keyboard. It is a simple little electronic tool overall. These are the steps to replace the battery it contains.
First, you will need:
- A new CR2032 battery
- A small flathead screwdriver (or pocketknife)
Follow these steps to resurrect your Jeep Grand Cherokee key fob:
- Release the key from the key ring and set it aside.
- Inspect the key fob near the key fob holder. You should see a small seam there. Insert the flat-head screwdriver into the seam. If your screwdriver is too thick, the tip of a razor should suffice.
- Use LIGHT PRESSURE on the screwdriver to gently separate the two plastic halves of the keychain. Did we mention using light pressure? Do not use strong pressure. Also, do not use a twisting motion as this will destroy the plastic of the keychain.
- When the key fob is in two parts, you should see the circuit board inside on one side and the battery on the other. Remove the old CR2032 battery; You may need to use the screwdriver or a nail to loosen it.
- Insert the new CR2032 battery into the keychain, in the same direction as the old battery (positive side facing down).
- The two halves of the keychain should snap back together easily. That is! Is over!
