    Hey guys, really need some help before I lose my mind and wallet here.

    Washing engine bay, I think the alternator got flooded. Reconnected battery, dome lights, and dash lights are turning on in the cab, now the fun part of starting.

    Trying to turn the truck over, heard a lot of buzzing and turned it off. Pulled battery, unplugged a bunch of electrical connections, and water came out of them. I've sprayed electric wire drier in everything.

    Can someone offer some advice? I know I fucked up and this may be comical for me in about a month but right now it's not.

    Cheers boys

    All i can offer is try using a leaf blower to blow & dry everything you can see, if you do not have one try a shop vac. with the hose hooked up to the out port.

    So hook all the connectors back up and dry it? Because I opened up all the connectors and they had water inside. Leaving them unconnected and closed the hood to dry over night

    Might as well blow dry them while you have them open. Give it a real good blow job. :censored:
