Go to a gun store and purchase a "hydrosorbent Silica Gel" canister - put it and the phone in a ziplock bag for a week. Most of the time it will extract the mositure.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector first and let it sit for at least 10mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get the electrical function back to it's normal operation.
If the problem still persists, I suggest that you have the PCM (powetrain control module) checked for it can be damaged due to the rain.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Buy a new battery, if it still dosen't work then you jammed your PC, take it for a repair or to the manufactures. wetting a PC/laptop is not what you need.

My TI-84 Plus Silver Edition stopped working

That actually is a result of water damage. You probably need to replace it, or see about getting it taken apart and dried if the water damage was recent. DO NOT take it apart yourself. Go somewhere and ask if that is possible.

Steering wheel ceases up during right hand turns at slow speeds. It doesn't happen often, but everytime it was during a rainstorm and I was going around 5-10 mph.

The belt that drives the p/s pump is getting wet and slipping. Replace belt, check tensioner and look for missing engine splash shields.

Coby mp3 won't turn on

Here are a few suggestions:
1-Did you try charging it? If the battery is dead, You may have trouble turning it on. :P
2-If you accidently got some water in it, even a drop, that could be your problem(I've broken 1 to many things this way)
3-Did you have it near a microwave while the microwave was going? A microwave usually states instant death for mp3players and cellphones.

I'd suggest buying a new battery for it and if that doesn't work, you probablly got it wet, and will have to buy a new one.

I hope I could be of assistance, have a nice day! =D
