    it could have been caused water ingress,but proving it is another thing,you could try unplugging the sensor and draining any collected water,believe it or not you should never pressure wash a modern car engine as the water can kill things like the ecu etc,and as the ecu is under the bonnet you can see where im coming from,i would complain to the dealer and tell them that since thier unautherised washing of the engine you have a problem,you will need to stand firm if they say it was not caused by what they did

    All the electrics will be IP compatible with power washers, so shouldn't allow water ingress. Probably a connector is wet some where.

    Personally, I would complain to them, but monitor as you drive around - it well dry out and be fine.

    You might find the gas sensor on the down pipe. They may have forced water into the connector with the jet washing. if you can find the gas sensor, follow the wire back up to where it is connected to the loom and try and dry it if it looks damp.
