Your honey just cheated you out of buying a new Corvette. I'd throw her to the curb...

Had the same issue when I put a “new” battery in the C7 fob. It didn’t work.
Battery was from some Chinese company made string lites that my wife bought. I went out and bought a new battery and the fob worked fine.
PS. My fob did not go through a wash cycle.

One other goodie is remove your hearing aids before taking a shower. I now have a sign in the bathroom.
