    Symptoms sound suspiciously similar to when I inadvertently left the cover off my ECU overnight, and it rained heavily. The water poured down the screen, over the scuttle and into the ECU tray. It soaked the ECU and several of the relays. The ECU was saved (sealed in a polythene bag with a poind of rice to absorb the moisture but the relays had to be replaced. The bill was nearly £300.
