Well turns out my jag doesnt like the rain, i have every warning light on the dash come on, engine management, restricted performance, gearbox fault, abs and dsc fault, even the coolant low light came on, Now do i need to clear the codes with the pc, or will they clear when it dries out

More a sign of a completely duff battery than anything else.

no its not the battery, its not very old, the water was about 2 feet deep
That's not rain that's a river. Did the water get into your boot and flood the fuse box. If so you will just have to dry everything, check all fuses too.

Did the water get inside, at that height you will also need to check and dry under the seats.

yeah more likely alternator shorting to ground.

The dash messages should clear by themselves unless a fault remains.

I have seen some rain down those parts , this was a few years ago in Beaumaris.

My bungalow in coast road Rhyl flooded as well as St Asaph , A55 was like a 3 foot deep river in places too.

well the water issue has manifested itself. i have gained another leak from the thermostat housing, looks like the gasket has gone, will a leak stopper fix this or do i need to strip it out and sort it.
Time is short and light is bad, and the weather is against me
