I got stuck in rain storm 2 days ago. I had about 3" of water on floor and dash was soaked. It will start but my dash lights don't work, the wipers won't shut off and it will not go in to gear. It's a 4 speed auto. If I pull battery wire and re hook it everything works correctly. As soon as I shut it off and restart it everything goes haywire again. Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Sounds like you have a Communications bus problem. Anytime the bus goes down it automatically turns the headlamps and wipers on. I would check under the dash and start disconnecting connectors. See if any water drains out of them. Pull the floor plugs to let all the water drain out and dry her out really good. Wouldn't be a bad idea to get some electrical contact spray to dry out all the connectors and pack them with a little dielectric grease in case this ever happens again.
Same thing happened to me. Except after I reset the battery it went away. I took mine to the carwash and thoroughly vacuumed it out then left it to dry for a day in the Houston heat.
There have been others with the same issue after rain. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/e...dness-1548481/
Doubting it. Either put a drying agent in it and button it up, or open it up if it is hot. And disconnect the battery through the process. The missus runs through every mudhole she can. And it takes MONTHS to dry it completely out.
