Your friend was lucky-for the license plate and 2 ft wire hanging out on 10 that's nothing compared to human beings. Now you're paying a big price you cannot party at night and don't know how to fix this problem-
Your problem is the printed circuit board got fried. The wire got shorted out bc water is a conductor electrical pressure will go thru and went thru the light switch to the PCB. This is a dealer fix not a DIY.
Good luck and be careful who you give those keys to.
