Too many electronic components to pressure wash. Will need to disconnect and dry every thing. Electronic contact cleaner good to use

Seems a little crazy that in this day and age you can't wash a car with the bonnet down in fear of electrical components getting wet.

Sadly it seems you are way off the mark it was actually the fuel pump and had nothing to do with washing the car
