    i also checked fuses and they are okay at least the one under the steering wheel, is there others, possibly fussable links?

    the button will not stay down? does that mean there is a bad connection in the relay?, possibly not allowing it to reset it self? or am i doing it wrong? should key be on or off?

Check the fuel pump fuse,and all the other fuses to see if they are blown.Also find and replce the fuel pump relay.If you can get it to running,let it run for a while to dry things up.

    Reset the relay,with the ignition off.If it is still popping up,there is a short some where in the system.There should be another relay,most likely under the hood.It is probly shorted out,from the water.
