My wife crazy

My wife drowned our key fob.

Yesterday my wife went out for a ramble getting soaked in the process. Unfortunately she took the car keys with her so they got soaked as well. Later on she came to use the car, when she blipped the unlock buttom on fob the alarm kept going off. As we have a second set of keys I used these to switch the alarm off and everything works normally with the second set of keys.
After I allowed the first set to dry I tried to use them again, nothing happens now.
What's going on here ? How does the system work ? Will I need a new fob ? If so how much should I be paying ?

Our car is a 54 plate 147 Lusso 2 litre petrol. Thanks in advance, John.

I'd open it up to make sure the inside is dry. Then change the battery and see if that works.

If you are not happy at opening up your fob and are happy to send your keys off for someone to look at then pm "Chris". A new fob and programming will cost at least 200 and a few folk have been a bit more
