Water and Electronics do not mix....
has anyone had issues with all the 'idiot lights' flashing after driving through puddles of water?
this has happened to me twice. the first time about 3 months ago or so when we had a lot of flooding and i drove my Compass through water that was up past the bottom of the doors. the tailpipe was submerged to give you an idea how deep the water was. after about 30 minutes of driving, the passenger restraint light, air bags, turn signals, etc....all started flashing and chimes, chiming. drove me nuts. drove it to work immediately and showed the SA what it was doing. later, when the tech finally got to check it, NO FAULT FOUND of course. not even a 'code'. if the SA hadn't witnessed it, i'm sure they would have thought i had 'smoked' my lunch or something.
so, today it's raining and i drove through a few puddles. PUDDLES! no flooding. but again, the same scenario. that was this AM on the way into work. when i went to lunch, no problem.
any ideas? anyone else have this issue that was FIXED? just curious what if i can give our service dept any more info when i go in for my appointment on Friday.
oh, BTW, on our 'trek' through the "Badlands" in Attica Indiana a week or so ago, went through all sorts of HIGH WATER and NOT ONCE did this happen.....WTF?
