    The ECM is a computer and very sensitive to moisture. It’s ok to wash under the hood but be careful around it. It should be impenetrable to moisture but unfortunately it’s not. I have heard this before.

    Yep
    I was just gonna say, stop gettin a truck wash , save the $$ and keep rolling.

    it usually doesn’t look much better after the wash anyway.
    There’s a reason the blue beacon truck wash is called “the streakin’ Beacon “

    Yes I try my best but I think it's just water that runs down that wets it just enough

    I steam clean the engine of every vehicle I've ever owned, engines of trucks, heavy equipment etc and have never once had a code or issue arise because of it. You can spray water all over that engine and wiring with no worries. Its when you stick the wand tip 6 inches away from that stuff that you cause damage. Keep the tip 2 or 3 feet back it should never been an issue.
     
    drivinhome, Bean Jr. and Brettj3876 Thank this.

    You need someone with computer to figure out what sensor cause STOP ENGINE and check sensor rubber cover.
