Default My maid washed and dried my FOB.... now what?

My maid washed and dired my FOB for my '09 XC90. I'm debating on either replacing the whole FOB and taking it to the dealer for programming, or should I try to get a new battery and see if it works?

Have anybody gone thru this? I guess that the FOB went thru the whole cycle, machine wash and then machine dry.... It is pretty clean, but now it does not work.

Any suggestions?

Took it apart and had some moisture in it, which I dried using an electonics duster.... Did saw some early stage corrosion, but hopefully it didi nothing to the electronics componets... will see.... Will buy a new battery and see if it works. I'll update later if it dead or alive....

YOU HAVE A MAID? Well, if you can afford a maid then I would just buy a new one. If you are starting to see corrosion, then it's just a matter of time til it fails. I would go ahead and spring for a new one.

Just made an appointment at the local Volvo dealership.... Tried the new battery but nothing happened... I guess that when the wife tried it out (it worked) after the "wash-and-dry" cycle short-circuited something on the FOB......

Maids are cheap here..... about $400 for a full-time live-in maid.... I'm in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman...... and I should have gotten a cheaper one... like $250 a month......

Firstly you should change a maid) How it could be that you allowed this woman to do those terrible things? As for me I have no any maid and when I need cleanning I just call this company and they do all things I need in a short term. But I am always is there and don't leave them alone in my home.
