Cars need to come with a warning sign under the hood, "DO NOT PRESSURE WASH OR SPRAY WATER ON ENGINE AND ITS COMPONENTS." All you can do is open everything up, dry it all out, reseat harness connectors to computer modules that got soaked, check all fuses/relays, check fusible links, and pray nothing needs reflashed.

I forget to mention that it has sat in my garage ever since (it was a few years ago) and wanted to get all of the bad gas out. i ran it but it had to be jumped and at one point the security light came on and it wouldn't come out of park. I checked all of the fuses and I just need to know what that chip is by the battery is so i can replace it.
