Hi everyone, I have a 08 Kia Ceed SW (1399cc petrol). The batteries in both keys need replacing as they are both dead. Managed to open one of the keys but the layout is different to any key I have seen before. Battery not exposed. There is a sealed unit inside. Is the battery within this unit?. Are they difficult to open?. Should I bring them to a Main Dealer?. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi Dustmedown,

I would hazard a guess that you don't have the owners manual anymore? It's definitely listed in there. On my Rio I pop the back quarter of my key off and it reveals the battery. I'm wondering whether the wrong back quarter has come off on yours revealing the sealed circuitry instead of the battery?

Cheers Agent, You are spot on. I should have known better. The manual reveals all. Not as precise as your instructions though. Off to Halford's tomorrow. Thanks again.
