Try putting it in some white rice overnight. Rice has been know to absorb moisture out of cell phones so they work again after getting wet. It may work on remote keys as well.

    I did the same thing with one of my keys for my 2011 Ford Fusion. It ran through the washer on hot. I discovered it when I was loading the clothes in the dryer. I removed the battery and dried it, then used a hair dryer on low setting to dry the fob with the battery removed to get as much moisture out as possible. I checked the battery with a voltmeter and it still was good. I then left the fob cover off for several hours. Intially the remote functions would not work, though I could unlock the car and start it using the key even though the remote functions didn't work. After a few more hours of drying out, the remote functions began to work again.

We have a ford fusion 2008 and when you hit the lock button on the key and then hit the lock on the starter fob the alarm always goes off. How do we fix this?


Get rid of the remote starter system. Some day soon, you won't be able to start your car with the key. I do not work on electrical problems on cars, unless the after market systems are gone.

Remote Start Systems for Fusion 2009


If the remote starter remote has a single button you must press and hold the button for approximately 2 seconds. The horn should sound and shortly after the vehicle will start. If you go to the ford dealer they might have an extra booklet hanging around. Good luck.
