Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Near the air compressor there are TRS and SRS timing sensors that could have water in the connections or have failed. Check the harness and connector pins. Also check the ECM connectors for water shorting them out. Check the ECM inline fuse between the battery box and ECM and be sure the check engine light is coming on and cycling with the key on as it should. If not the ECM is is not communicating from either a loss of power or ground or a faulty ECM. Let me know
