    There's your problem right there. Fried the voltage regulator for sure.

    Take it off and try and return it. Just tell them they gave you a bad one and hope for the best.

    Otherwise, your out the cost of a new one.

    Next time when you clean the engine bay, cover ALL eletrical components with a plastic bag or tin foil, and never spray water directly at them.
