smart key fob

Asked by Oct 26, 2019 at 12:15 PM about the 2017 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Replaced the battery in the key fob but the message on dash still says - key
fob battery low. And then, seconds later, it says key fob not detected. How do
you reset the message and get the key fob to be detected?

Often when you replace the fob battery, you have to reprogram the car to the fob; instructions are in your owners manual.

thank you for replying - I did check my owners manual and there is nothing about how to reprogram. I tried You Tube and one person has a video but didn't work. So sadly and reluctantly I think it is a trip to the Honda dealership.
