    Default rainy jeep

    Last night i left the top off on my jeep and this morning it started pouring when I got out there, there was about 1/2 inch of water on the passenger side. I also noticed that my stereo was lit up with out the keys in it so after I put the top on i went to start it up and my windshield wipers turned on even though on the column they were off. I can hear a ticking like my turn signals are on but it's pretty rapid then goes away any idea what could be wrong.

    i'd say let it dry out then see if it still does it. til then maybe disconnect the battery so you dont run it down.

    Well I took out the stereo and the turn signal relay. Once it stops raining then I will go disconnect the battery.

    I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. To speed up the drying process I stuck a box fan in the back.

    thats weird lol, my top stays off for good and its been flooded about 20 times. The worst thats ever happened was that the top speakers stopped working but they started again after about 2 days. Just leave the top off in the sun and it will dry out in a few hours.
