The actual OnStar module is bolted under the parcel shelf in the trunk (under rear window). Probably not affected.mnsfollett said:In process of washing the carpets they decided to flood the inside of the vehicle with soap and suck the fluid out with a shop vac ! When the car was returned to me, the audio system was dead and the onstar service is gone.
Your main concern is audio AMP1 under the drivers seat. The amp sits low and all the connections are under the carpet. The amp may be salvageable but the harness connections and amp will need to be dried. It's not easy to get to. If water got into the amp it may be ruined. You would need to dry it out pretty quickly before corrosive bridges form between components on the circuit board.
Those detailers are idiots! I hope they have deep pockets.
There have been several incidents of AMP1 failing and being replaced under warranty. So Saab may be willing to foot the cost of this one if you don't tell them the whole story.
Still, the detail shop owes you something for your trouble.
Oh, incidentally, soapy water is a far better conductor of electricity than plain water. That makes this no ordinary screwing-- more like a Royal Screwing:evil:
