How to change the battery on the Mercedes Benz Smart Key Fob. How do you know you need a new battery? The remote lock or unlock range is poor. Or even worse, door lock/ unclock is not even working. These videos will show how to change the battery on different Mercedes-Benz Key Fob Remotes. There are several Mercedes Smart Key remotes so make sure to look at the correct video.
We strongly recommend using a Lithium battery like these ones, as they last much longer.
First you need to identify which key you have. There are several models. The current Smart key fob is the chrome key with a triangle panic button.
If your buttons are worn out you may want to consider adding a silicone case to avoid further damage to your key. You can get a cover case for less than $10, see here.
