A notice came up on the centre screen of the car notifying my that the battery in the key fob needs replacing.
I have a fiesta titanium with the keyless entry. Have checked the 2nd key fob ANC that ones almost dead too.
Is this something I can do myself or do I have to take it to ford?
Many thanks :)

Have something to contribute?

your ford fiesta manual page 32 describes how to change the battery.

Yep, happens quite often, in about 6 months, due to it always being active!
But I only have the start now, does anyone know if this is the same?

I've searched the manual and it doesn't show you how to change the battery with keyless entry, only with the normal keys with either a fixed or folding blade. My key has a blade concealed within the key fob and is only used if the battery is completely dead or remote locking not functioning. Icant find a battery anywhere within my key fob!

There's a seam around the key, pop a knife in it and twist, it will come in to 2 pieces, one of the 2032s I think is what you need!

I changed mine twice in 2 years!

They all have the same manual, just has all the features in, if you have them!
