Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has thought of or heard of any kind of engine cutoff linked to a flood sensor. I am a plumber and whenever we install a water heater in any kind of ceiling space we always put a flood sensor In the drain pan so that if the heater ever leaks and the drain pan gets wet it triggers a solenoid which shuts a valve on the heater inlet. I am curious to see if anyone has ever thought of doing something like this in the air intake box, if the sensor gets wet then cut power to the engine and hopefully prevent hydro lock. Also what system would you cut power to to stop the engine in its tracks?

Not that I plan on taking my jeep swimming, but I figure a little just in case planning couldn't hurt. I have no plans to do an engine swap just yet lol.

Interesting idea. Seems like something you could build yourself with an arduino.

I guess cutting ignition power to the coils?
