Electrical Wierdness...

We had an unexpected hard rain a few day ago while I was stuck in a meeting, and the back softtop windows were not on the jeep. Full doors /with windows rolled up and top on.

So, I got a good 2 inches of water puddled up in the rear floorboard. Drove it home with no probs and parked it for the evening planning on vacuuming and drying in the morning.

Started her up, no gauges, wipers still going and wont shut off, no lights and wont go into gear. Kinda like the start mode when you use the remote start.

Anyway, I disconnected the battery for a few minutes to reset everything, and she started right up! Normal. Has been fine since then.

I have a hard time believing rainwater in the floorboards would have caused that.
Maybe the cpu just got fussy from the moisture?

This thread is pretty much the problem you are having. Not sure if anything was resolved though.

Sounds like it could just be a moisture issue to me.

and that must have been one hell of a rainstorm if you had 2" of water with just the back windows out. the back of my jeep normally only gets damp when setup like that in any kind of rainstorm.

Yeah, It was a downpour! We get 'em alot down here. Only lasts a half hour or so but the drops are about 2oz. of water each!
