Start by checking your Cam Position Sensor (P0340) and go from there. There are some things under the hood of a Jeep that don't like water.

This is why I NEVER wash under the hood. Some people say "Ahhh, I do it all the time! Nothing goes wrong!" but it only takes once.

Honestly, with electrical issues like that (caused by water damage) you should just get a dealer**** to diagnose it. You'll spend hours and hours trying to figure it out and you'll spend hundreds of dollars throwing parts at it without the right diagnostic tools and knowledge.

I have washed under the hood on all my past and current vehicles at-least once per year, never had a problem yet. When the vehicle's engine is cool, I use a light spray with some light de-greaser, I cover electronics/fuse box's with bags/towels and just slowly and carefully go over it all. I do agree with the above comment of getting it to the dealer to diagnose the codes and other problems because as mentioned you could spend lots and lots of time and money!

Sorry to hear about the damage and problems to your Jeep!

Again, it only takes one time where you don't completely cover a connector and then you're screwed.

i wish i could take your advice to take the car to a main dealer this car is in a third world country theres no main dealers for jeep. Three quarters of time we buy these car in europe and ship it to africa but i knew about the electronics with these cars so i bought a scanner that would work the car and also because i can always get the spare parts from here europe or america, we scanned and this are the readings PO 473 sensor c reference vlotage circuit low+++,PO 087 fuel rail/system pressure too low, PO 600 Serial comm link malfunction. So we need someone who can interpret this codes so we can get the right parts to fix the car, help appreciated or any suggestion.

No interior serial communications in your PCM or in street lingo....you have 'smoked' your PCM;

If it were me in your situation, I would unplug every connector I could find in the engine bay, spray it out with contact cleaner, and reconnect it.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.
