Headlights

94 zj with automatic headlights

Kinda sunk it in mud, water up to the dash now the headlights come on even with the switch in the off position and when I do mange to turn them off they come on by them selves, think it's the switch relay or the auto sensor, long as I can turn them on and off Idc about the automatic control

Good luck. Don't have schematics for that to help you but flooded vehicles are often totaled for a reason. The ensuing nightmares are often never ending. That really sucks.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

Hope you drained every fluid possible on that Jeep and replaced. Even then, water and oils mixed together can swell up some weird things. A lot of down the road issues can result from the milkshake.

Glad to hear it is working again but be proactive about fluids and stuff. Some things may have to be cleaned or flushed multiple times.

These can really be a nightmare. I will say it again. Be vigilant and proactive. A lot of vehicles are totaled by floods. It is for a reason.

Sorry to hear that. The trans is a real tough one to get all the water it took on out of it. But the diffs, t-case, all of it needs to be checked and changed.
