How did you clean it? Pressure washer or just a non-pressure water hose? I'd find the connector for the Traction Control and unplug, clean with electrical cleaner, let it sit out to dry. Water could easily cause a short or mis-reading

Pressure washed it sort of.. with a water hose. My husband is trying the Traction control now but would that make the car be in safe mode? Thanks

we are getting the following codes: P2104 P2111 P2135 when we put the computer on it.

all of them are related to your throttle sensors. If you ever wash the engine bay, do it with light water pressure and **always** let it dry out before you turn on. Check all your caps (oil, power streering, etc) to make sure they are sealed shut before hosing.
