FAILSAFE COOLING LIGHT

2000 Ford Crown Victoria

Electrical problem
2000 Ford Crown Victoria V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles

this is possibly an electrical problem. Not sure.
Yesterday I pressure washed the engine. Today, it has a problem. It runs fine while idling. The minute you accelerate, the cooling light flashes on and the car dies. It recranks easily and idles fine. What have I gotten water into, as that seems the most likely problem as it didn't do this before the cleaning.

Oun have gotten water in the spark plug well and the coil ism shorting out. You can have the codes read ans]d it will tell you the plug thyat is misfiring and causing the problem. Po301 is #1 cylinder all the way up tu P0308 for # 8 cylinder.
