Question about Mercedes-Benz CLK
I would suspect that the fuse box int the engine compartment got wet. Open the hood, look for the fuse box, and see if it is wet inside.
Regarding the open hood, that is probably the switch itself that got wet. The moisture is causing the switch to short circuit as if the hood were open.
For both problems, I would say the first thing to do is park in the sun with the hood open and allow the sun to aid in drying everything out. If both problems go away when dry (and it may take quite a while to fully dry out depending on how wet it got), then I would inspect the hood switch and reseal or replace the switch. When checking the switch, pay attention to where the wires connect, it could be a short on the wires and not the switch itself.
For the fuse box, carefully inspect and see if any of the seals have deteriorated. There should be a seal where the top goes on, and where the wire harness goes in.
Best of luck, Jim
