How to Change a Range Rover Key Batteryby Abigail Adams
Range Rover owners are defined by three primary traits: an appreciation for luxury, a sense of style, and an appreciation for going anywhere the outdoors has to offer. Of course, the outdoors aren't quite as enticing when you'd standing outside your Rover in the rain, and style isn't served much by smelling like a wet dog. Luxury is knowing you have the power to do what you want, and go where you want, when you want; changing your Rover's key battery before it completely dies can make the difference between going out for a night on the town, and spending that same time at the dry cleaner's.
Check for the "Remote Battery Low" signal message that is displayed on the vehicle's dash once the remote key battery starts to run down. Be sure to replace the battery is before it dies completely. If the battery is dead, it will not be able to start the Range Rover.
Buy the correct battery for replacement. Two round CR 2025 batteries are needed. You can purchase them at most major supercenters, camera stores or drug stores. They are a common size and should be readily available.
Use a nickel to remove the battery holder on the key remote. Turn the cover until the arrows line up and remove it. The cover fits very tightly and you may need a small screwdriver to pry it off. Remove the battery holder and circular ring from the remote. Take the old batteries out of the battery holder.
Place the new batteries in the battery holder. Replace the battery holder and circular ring in the key remote, aligning the arrows. Turn the cover clockwise until it is secure.
Resynchronize the key by simply placing the key in the door lock. Lock and unlock the door to the Range Rover and then press the remote control.
