The proplem is probably the anti-freeze. Any circuits/connectors that got soaked need to be cleaned well with clean water to remove all traces of the anti-freeze and dried well. Electronics don't need a dead short, just a resistive path, which the anti-freeze probably supplies, to cause problems.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
