Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am the Expert who will be assisting you today.

The water in your key fob is making connections which mimic pressing the buttons. Like most electronics, water may damage it permanently. You need to get the battery out and leave the case open so it can dry. It may or may not work after that and it cannot be repaired, only replaced. I have seen them come back from water intrusion so you have a pretty good chance it will work if you can dry it out.
