Hi, what usually happens is water gets into the electronic gearshift mechanism and shorts it out. You can try using a blow dryer to dry out the shifter but it may not work. Letting the car sit outside in the hot sun with the roof open might also dry out the shifter. If you have no success you will need to replace the shifter assembly.
