Question Help with OBDII codes for 97 sport

We had some serious rain fall here the other night. When driving home, I hit some fairly large puddles. As I pulled in the driveway, I noticed some sputtering going on, and the rpm's dipping far below 1k, then back up, then back down.

The check engine light came on when I started it the next day, and the following are the codes it generated. These are listed in the sequence given.

12 - Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 Key-on cycles.

24 - Throttle position sensor input above or below acceptable voltage. TPS signal does not correlate to MAP sensor.

11 - No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking. Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor. CKP sensor target windows have too much variation.

11 - No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking. Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor. CKP sensor target windows have too much variation.

55 - Completion of fault code display on Check Engine lamp.

As for the 12, I recently installed a bass tube, which the battery was disconnected for, so I'm assuming that's what's generating that code. As for the others, I'm by far no mechanic so I'm clueless as to what these are hinting at. All I can tell you, is that before this run-in with mother nature, everything seemed to be operating normally.

As always, any help would be greatly appreciated.

did it clear up or is it consistently acting up now?

Rinse out all those affected sensor connectors with WD-40 & then shake the excess WD-40 out, it's likely water got into their connectors. WD-40 is superb at getting rid of moisture in electrical connections.

After washing them out with WD40 you may want to glob some dielectric grease in the plugs to keep it from happening again.

jpdocdave - The problem persists, but much less severe. I drove it this morning to work (about 8 miles), and noticed it mildly sputtered two or three times on the highway. Aside from that, all things seemed normal, including RPM's while idling.

Jerry - I'll give the WD-40 a shot. Thanks for the suggestion, and congrats on the new Jeep.

W4MAC - I will follow your suggestion, and thanks.

By the way, would anybody have any idea why the code 11 would be generated twice in a row like that? Just thought it was odd. Maybe she's a stu-stu-stutterer?

Thanks again for the help everyone.

don't worry about the repeat 11, there's not always a reason for the codes when using the key cycle. these guys already suggested to do what i was going to get at anyway, make sure there's not water in your distributor as well.
