cause your semptoms..
Check to see if your getting water into or around your glovebox area. Water has to be getting in there & onto the ECU (Located behind the trim pieces above the glovebox, under the dash). It would seem right that your car only drives/ runs like this when it's washed or rains out? Right?
Do a water test with the garden hose on the passengers side around the wiper grille area (maybe the drain is clogged & the water is overflowing into the car). Open the glovebox to see if there are any leaks- Cover the ECU up!
Let us know what happens-
