Any suggestions? I'd really, really, really like to be able to drive home tonight.

EDIT: I took the housing off the control module, there's water inside the housing somehow, but nothing around where it was is wet. However, the passenger's floorboard is soaked.

If your ECU isn't shot from water damage, try taking out the fuses. I think Clifford does more than just the little alarm module.
