Just realized had a small spill of water in the back passager floor 8 hours ago. Floor mat is still a bit wet, not sure if that matters? Will be car battery die if this light stays on all night?

Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing less. Hello sorry for delay. I had to wait for the lock to expire for your other request. Yes. The spill caused the issue. That is the first question I was going to ask
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 years ago.
There is a control module called a SAM and it's located just under the passenger seat under the vent on the floor and it controls all the lights. The module will have to be replaced. If your lucky you can remove it and clean it with contact cleaner. Here is a link to access it. Also yes it will kill the battery. Best bet is to unhook the negative cable.
That is the instructions to remove the battery. The module is just to the right of it. See the links. The picture is as if you were standing out side the passenger door looking in. The seat does not have to be removed. Just moved up and forward. Hope this information helps.
