Last night after I had gone to bed, we had a circuit breaker trip (shorted light bulb). I got dressed and put my key in my pocket so I could lock the back door. I reset the breaker and came back in, forgetting to take the key out of my pocket. My wife washed the pants this morning. When she put them in the dryer she noticed a klunk. She brought me the key fob. I figured at the least I would have to take it apart and dry it. I decided to check it and it worked fine. I guess they seal those pretty good. I had never had it apart (unlike the ones for my 2008).

I guess Chrysler plastic isn't all bad. (y)

You might be giving the show and shine guys on here an idea thouigh. The job isn't complete until the key fob takes a dip. :)

I will not knowingly try that again. My wife says at our age we have to keep reminding each other about things.

So every time you come through the door the wife will ask you "where's your key fob?" :)

Stuff happens, mostly due to distraction, even when you're younger. You probably went up a one way street or two when you were younger. :) I did back in my university years. A policeman on horseback gave me a ticket. Haven't liked horses since. :)

Left my wallet in my work pants a few years back. Unusual as I never put a wallet in my work pants, keep them light as possible, no phone either. After finishing work, I went for a 10 minute drive to get gas. Filled up, walked into the gas station, no wallet. She was understanding and put my name in her "Book of Shame". she called it. That didn't make me feel any better. :)

I was much younger then, but thinking I was old. Ha, ha.

Even if it works it could still have water (and detergent) inside. I would take it apart, and if it is wet inside, I'd clean it with isopropyl alcohol.
