Washed key fob

Morning all

The other half decided to do some washing only the spare key fob was in my pocket. Now the blame as to whether it is my fault for leaving it in the pocket or her fault for not checking will go on for a while, I am sure image.gif.02592320d92af946fa08125068df455f.gif

I have dried it with a hair drier and changed the battery over and it unlocks the car fine, locks it after a few presses but it isn't showing as available when it is in the car so unable to start it.

Does this mean it is now unusable and need a replacement or is it salvageable?

Thanks in advance

Hi

I would try storing it in a bag of uncooked rice for a few days which will help absorb any moisture and keep your fingers crossed.

Good luck with the blame game... 🙂

I did laugh sorry at the blame part😞  the rice trick is a good suggestion, may take a few days, will probably depend on the detergent and if any is left behind on the circuit

Thanks Big John

Still not winning the blame game but I am in no rush 😇

Thankfully I have got the key working again, with a bit of fiddling, but save s a new fob
