Electrical Problem?

2011 Sport

I got caught away from the house during the rain yesterday. Jeep was in the driveway with the top down. Texas weather...

I get home, and the side marker lights and brake lights are all lit up.

Had about 2" of water in the tub. Pulled the drain plugs. Drove it a couple of miles to a shop vac. The lights went off.

The sun is out today, so I have it open to dry. Lights were off when we left for the grocery store.

We came back home, and the side marker lights and brake lights are back on. I drove it a couple miles, but they didn't go off.

Any ideas what I'm dealing with? I'm guessing an electrical short, but all the gauges, stereo, etc. work. The only thing that seems to be out is the remote keyless entry.

The running lights are now back to normal.

Remote keyless entry is still out. Driver's side door will not lock, even with the key. Button is jammed. Any ideas?

I am continuing to run the leaf blower under the carpet, and everything is open for the second day.
