Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
I have seen in some cases where the drivers door latch itself can fail internally causing this fault here needing replaced.It sends a signal when it is locked and unlocked and if it is sending a false signal it causes the alarm to go off in some cases like this.
Also with the key issue almost every time I have seen an electronic key dropped in water it can corrode the electronics in the electronic key or short out the electronic key and cause this issue here needing replaced as a complete key assembly unfortunately.If the remote still does not work properly and you have dried it out I suspect the key itself will need replaced and has to be obtained from a dealer.
