    So I spent a little too much time stuck in some water on Monday night, where the left side of my truck was in the deeper parts of the water. I had a few inches of water on the left side for about twenty minutes. I had to keep the windows shut all last night so when I went out to my truck today the cab was really damp and the radio wouldn't work. No lights lit up on the radio either, although all other electronics still worked. I could really use some help with this.

    I have a '05 four door Off Road if that helps.

    Get it into a heated garage and open the doors with some fans to circulate the air.

    I would start here.

    Open it up and let it air out. Heat and fans if at all possible.
