How long does a battery in my car key last?
Car Key batteries vary in life. For the most part, older style remotes such as your basic Ford remote can last a really long time, over 5 years. These ford remotes as seen below work for most Ford models between 2000 - 2009.
However as cars have advanced in technology so have their keys. Battery life on smart keys (push to start cars) for example don’t last very long because they are always working. Think of them like your smart phone it is always working so the battery dies quickly.
From our experience cutting and programming car keys across seventeen locations, Nissan smart keys seem to have the shortest battery life and should be replaced every six months to a year depending on how much it is used. The newer vehicles will even warn you when your car key battery is getting weak and time to be replaced.
