A lady needs help with her Ford Edge!

Two weeks ago, trying to be a cool mom, I went through a puddle( about 2 inches deep) making a wave of water for my son to enjoy. My edge still ran great and did not have any issues until I tried to start her up again.
I would try to start her and all the dash lights would come on and she would not start. This happened for 2 days. I had her towed to my garage, and of course she started fine and they could not find any issues. I brought her home and the next morning again she would not start. After a third try that morning, she finally started. Again back to the garage, and they again could not find anything wrong. The engine light does not come on. They checked her out all over again.
So for the past 2 weeks, my girl has been moody! Sometimes she starts right up, other times it takes a few tries. It has been raining here almost daily and humid. When she does start, there are no issues at all while driving.

Anyone have a clue on where to start to fix this? My Edge is a 2010 with 70,000 miles.

Could just be dampness on electrics which will dry up and clear with heat from engine/usage and when weather changes , hopefully.

P.s

Welcome to the forums .

Welcome to the forums. Try spraying the electrical connectors with WD40. It'll displace moisture and help flush away contaminants.
