Prestige remote starter fell in bowl of water

I dropped my prestige remote starter in a bowl of water and now it still lights up but my car doesn't react. I don't have the manual because it the starter came with the car when i bought it. Is there anything I can do to make it work again?

    My dog chewed mine and now it doesn't work. When I purchase another one will I have to re set it or will it work already for my car?

Wasn't the unit hooked up already? You can't plug it back in? I'm still trying o picture the dropping into a BOWL? of water???

Give me the model and I can give you color codes, but if the wiring is still in tact you shouldn't need to rewire. Let me know and I'll help you out.

Try lock, unlock,lock for Prestige/Pursuit models. If Directed models, try lock, lock or lock, lock, lock.

Locate the valet switch( black push button), turn ignition on, press and release valet switch. the valet switch is plugged onto the main control unit. You can find the main control unit by tracing the harness that you unplugged from the shock sensor. The valet switch is plugged into a two pin plug and has a blue end. Trace the wire to the valet switch.
