Re: who says ponies cant swim

yeah my 18 yr old son did it, so he will be out there with a dam toothbrush cleaning week after week till I think the demon is dead or I am,which ever comes 1st,I'm have a problem with it tho,all the service lights are staying on after key is off,but when you start it they all go off,drains battery if we dont unhook it,I have unhooked everything I can think of,with no help,and it not throwing any codes ,maybe someone has a idea..being a wht.35th ann.GT its worth saving I think there aint that many of them out there..

Re: who says ponies cant swim

its probably because of the water short circuiting the dash somehow, maybe make sure that the fuse box is completely dry. Is the engine working fine?

Re: who says ponies cant swim

well.. you have fuses installed. as long as there isnt a short to the fuses i say hook it up and see what blows. that would help you. but make sure there are no shorts before the fuses
