Engine light blinking after heavy rain and going through water puddle while driving

Asked by Jul 02, 2016 at 11:46 AM about the 2006 Jaguar X-TYPE 3.0L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Jaguar X Type and after leaving
work, there was heavy rain and car was fine until I
drove through some puddles causing a lot of water
to wash under my car, then all the sudden engine
light started blinking, car kind of jerking, couldn't
go past 30-35 miles because of engine light
blinking and car jerking. I parked it, let it sit for a
day, turned the car on and engine light
automatically starts blinking without even moving
the car so I just turned it off and now I'm trying to
figure out what to do. Before this happened I was
currently having a problem with my cooling fan not
staying off after turning of the car. Every time I
parked I had to disconnect battery so the fan
would stop and it wouldn't kill my battery. I just
recently had transfer case replaced and new
battery.

Sounds like one or some of your electrical components got wet causing an issue. You scan the car for the codes to see what circuit is causing the issue and correct. Get the fan circuit repaired too, isn't a pain to disconnect the battery everytime you park the car?
