Though they show Jeeps and other 4x4's going through water and flying through the air, in reality they aren't much better protected from the elements than a passenger car. Those used for that are sealed better (even the intake and exhaust inlets and outlets are moved) You are going to need to unplug and dry out every sensor and wire connection, then spray with a good tuner/contact cleaner (sold at most radio shack stores etc)
It is possible that you blew out a diode in the alternator as well. Diodes are very hot and if splashed with water, they shatter. Check to see if the battery is low on voltage (if low, alternator is your first suspect).
Worst case imaginable is that you got water into the intake. If so, it may have hydro-locked one or more cylinders. If so, removing the spark plugs can help, but water is non-compressible and if it got into a cylinder, it can bend or break a connecting rod. (hope not but it can happen)
Hope this helped. Feel free to ask if you run into anything you don't understand and I'll be glad to help!

Take and get battery checked. Its amazing how often they are the culprits even when you're convinced they aren't.

But... the ignition rod sounds like its funked up.
