THE BEST THING TO DO WHEN ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS GET WET IS TO DISCONECT THE POWER TILL DRY, UNHOOK THE BATTERY AND LET THE CAR SIT FOR A COUPLE DAYS TO DRY OUT THE WIRING THEN HOOK THE BATTERY BACK UP. THIS WILL RESET THE ESP AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL WORK IF THERE IS NO DAMAGE FROM THE WATER TO THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
