    just thought about this while going to work; sa kahaba habang panahon that we've been using electronics sa cars, ba't parang wala pang nakakaisip ng paraan to make it less susceptible to water/floods -- or, at the very least, make them less susceptible to getting fried? i.e. something as basic siguro as having some sort of water/moisture sensor that'll kill the ECU pag tipong aapawan na ng tubig...

    back in my RC car days... we placed all electronic parts inside a rubber bag/balloon and tied the openning with a nylon tie.

    Well, an ECU can be fried din kasi if one of the sensors short out, wala namang fuse kasi kada sensor kaya if the component gets fried, the ECU can too.

    Happened to a friend's car before, nasira knock and maf sensor and the ecu followed a week after.

    Off-roaders usually relocate them. Though hindi ito problema sa Pajero because you'd have to sink the dashboard before the ECU gets wet [ECU resides behind glovebox door].

    Don't seal it up too much. Kailangan din ng labasan ng init ng ECU.

    Actually, that's the main reason they're not waterproof... heat buildup... and the fact that fried sensors and shorts can also fry the ECU.

    Would be nice if they mounted them higher, though.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
