Default Re: NEED HELP ASAP. major electric problem.

First, I agree this has NOTHING to do with OHC wiring or Jason's skills. This thread should be rewound a few hours to wipe out that mile of BS.

Sequentially failing systems in the rain is a pretty big damn clue. I would be pulling that dash apart and looking for a leak somewhere. That is exactly what complicated electronics do when they get wet. The GEM is under the dash adjacent to the windshield and defroster vents. Right where water will go.

The floor was wet too?!?!??! Oh for gods sake. Might have mentioned that a few hours ago, this thread would have been open and shut.

I suggest you remove the GEM, open it up as best you can, put it in the oven at about 130 degrees to dry it out. It might heal itself and work again. Or it might be toast. Be prepared to buy a new one. But first fix the leak.

This ^^^^ although I would be a little weary putting it in the oven, I'm not much of a baker. Lol. I've had good luck with soaked cell phones by putting them in a bag of un cooked rice, it draws the moisture out of the circuits.

I've dried much more expensive and sensitive things in an oven before. 130 is not really that hot and well under anything melting point. A lot more effective then holding a hair drier over it.

yeah those guys who installed your audio made a giant cluster-fuck of your wiring. Your gonna need a wiring diagram and lots of patience to fix that up.
