Wow, 26 bucks for this response. I was hoping that you could have given your best guess of what happened after the wash; whether the light would go out on its own; maybe something electrical got wet.....

once the light it is triggered its going to stay on to you clear it yes i assume something got wet during the wash that set off the code you can reset the system by unhooking the battery witch may clear the code if the water didnt damage anything if it did it will not reset the code and you will have to find out what code you are getting
