    I have a '02 Honda City. Inabot ng flash flood ni Milenyo sa garahe and the interior got soaked. I immediately disconnected the battery cable from the power source when i arrived home then removed all seats and upholstery. When I checked the computer box, 1/3 of it got wet so I disconnected the wirings to let it dry.
    Question: safe na ba na i-reconnect ko na ulit at i-try ko mag-start ng oto? what's the best thing to do?

    pa check mo na lang sa casa, baka mag short yun computer box mas malaki pa gastos. well, that is kung di pa sya sira now. and you might have water na pumasok sa makina mo, you don't want that to start the car with water in the engine kasi overhaul ang mangyayari nyan. but again kung pinasok na nga ng tubig, kailangan na talaga overhaul.

    You can open the case up and air dry it. Minsan kasi may parang wax cushion ang ECU, baka hindi matuyo ng maayos kung naka-kulob.

    yep. tama, patuyuin lang muna maigi. kasi yung friend ko na may mazda 323F pinilit paandarin yung kotse nya after malubog sa baha. ayun, umandar kaya lang erratic na. yun pala sira na yung ECU.

    Nabasa ba sa loob yung box? Gamitan mo ng hair dryer at siguraduhin mong tuyo na bago mo subukan.

    dalhin mo sa trusted mechanic mo para mas sure...baka mag-short yan at mag-cause ng mas malaking gastos sa auto mo...

    use WD-40 para malinis iyong mga component then let it dry or use hair blower.

    most of mechanic and even in electronics suggested WD-40 to remove the corroded parts and prevent to become worst lalo na iyong mga pins the component.

    I dont know with other friends in the forum what they suggest but for me WD-40
