Try disconnecting both battery cables, and leave them disconnected for 3-5 minutes.
Hopefully things have had a chance to dry & that will clear the soft code.
Let us know if that works!

Sorry to hear that.
You are going to have find a shop or someone with a scanner capable of reading chassis codes.
If you post the stored code or codes, we should be able to help you along then.

Did a shop scan for codes? Possibly the scanner was not capable?
Do you know which brand/model scanner was being used?
Maybe try another shop...IDK...
TechII in post #7 did mention the Autozone rental of the CP9580 would be worth a try for sure.
