I guess that's what I get for not checking all the pockets in my pants before starting the wash and I did in fact wash my key. Amazingly it still works, I can only guess how much a new one would cost me. :roll:

Anyone else here had a stupid incident like this?

A new one is around $250 from the dealer. I'm just in the dilemma that I just purchased an IS, but it only has one key. Looking to get another master.

I have a hookup at my dealer, but that still wouldn't help that much if retail is $250.

I'm usually careful I just forgot this time, but I guess I'm quite happy that through all the key went through it still works, which alone is amazing.

hey i did the same thing with the credit card-sized key...i left it in my wallet and washed the wallet with my pants :crazy: It also worked perfectly fine. I'm sure you could go to the dealership and complain of how the key became faulty after a while and they might replace it.

Yeah, but he'd probably be shooting at you! He'll just replace the windows (that's if he's a good shot). :lol:

I guess the folks in New Zealand are more respectful for one's belonging's since here in the U.S. u can't get away with that even if ur in a high powered secured place!!!!!

:-? :-? :-?
What are you talking about? Many people do the same thing here without garage alarm.
Personally, I start my car in the garage so it warms up, then head back into the house (temp fix until remote start is intalled). Noone will take it.
My Dad's car spent a week at a friends house driveway with its keys on the drivers seat.

I left my key in my pants while they were washing about two months ago and it is still working. Once I found out what I had done I put the key in the oven for about 10-15 seconds to help with the moisture. I never thought it would work again, but everyday that pasts I get proven wrong once again.

I wonder which decision was worse - to wash a key or to put it in the oven? :lol:
You're lucky it works.

My key fell out of my pocket while walking on a dock. Water was about 8ft deep and couldn't see more than two feet down. Took a net and fished it out after 20min, and it was in the thick dirty mud. I was shocked it worked and still working 6 months later.
