You will need to dry out all the electrical connections(plugs)Usualy done with compressed air.Sounds like a water based short that usualy goes away once you dry it all out.Also pay particular attention to ignition system.Good luck.

How do I reset the alarm on a 2005 hyundai Santa 2.4l

Not sure about yours, but many will reset by: turn key to "on" and wait 15 minutes or so; shut off, then try to start.

We have had alot of snow here in North Dakota and my son has a 2002 Cavalier and he drove thru some finger drifts and all of a sudden the trac off button is lite up and check engine light is on. Thank you...

I would bet that in driving thru the snow drifts, the ABS sensor has become unplugged. There is one on each wheel. Best to take it to a shop that can put the car up on a lift.
Should be an easy fix UNLESS the sensor or connector is broken

Good Luck. . . . .

Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
