Check your fuses. You may have popped one when wet. If fuses all good, remove the negative lead from the battery, wait a bit and reattach it. This will reset the electronics.

Before you disconnect the battery, do yourself a favor and write down all your preset radio stations and other audio settings if you can get to view them.
