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.
