Rain in Jeep causing electric problems.

Well let my top down yesterday and the jeep got drenched, I pulled the floor plugs and went to start it and I got a engine light. I let her dry out over night and she's sputtering and running like crap. I can hear the turn signal sylinoind constantly clicking too. Any ideas do you think she will dry out and be ok or did I fry some thing?

Have you pulled the code to see what popped up? I'd do that first.

Sounds like the steering column got soaked real good. I'd check out the ignition switch as the culprit for your running issues - it may still be wet or could have been damaged.

Fresh water rarely harms low voltage electrical circuits. I'd bet a dollar everything will be fine and as before once you give it a few days to completely dry out. Mine would do the same thing when I would power wash the engine compartment but once it dried out, it was fine.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
