Has anyone experienced this before?

I went to self serve car wash the one with the spray nozzles. I sit back in the car trying to get out and the car wouldn't turn on

Ended up jumping the car l. Not sure what that was about?

Any info on this would be highly appreciated

Did water get in through a firewall grommet and mess with any of the control modules? Check for water in the tool compartment in the floor

I didn’t even think about this, what year is your car? CBAs leak on the passenger side by the battery, forgot about this. AMS sells a block off.

I can only comment that I use touchless car washes, and I keep my car running with the inside fan turned all the way up, to increase inside air-pressure slightly.  This avoids a few drops of water/soap/wax coming under/through the window's seals.

Check the tow hook tray under the passenger floor mat after a wash or heavy rain. https://www.amsperfo...-splash-shield/
