Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The problem you are having it very likely caused by water intrusion in the control modules . Are you able to scan the computer system and see if they have any stored fault codes and if so what they are. Post back with the results and we can work from there.
