Cant get dtc

I have a 2007 Polaris Sportsman 500 x2. It ran perfect everytime until I washed it recently. Now I have multiple issues. 1st- when trying to start the engine, it did not start but saw gas had been filling up in the exhaust pipe like the injector was wide open. 2nd - sometimes dont even have spark, but sometime a weak spark. 3rd- when trying the procedure to get dtc on the dash, it takes 3 turns of the ignition switch to get the display to light up just once, so I cant get the 3 “key on” in 5 secs to activate diagnosis mode..4- the IAC clicks for sometimes 20 seconds after the key is off. 5- HOT often flashes on the dash and the speedo needle always blinks... I have a Clymers manual and am going thru different tests but getting frustrated..

First, unplug every electrical connector you can find, blow dry them with compressed air and fill them with dielectric grease and plug them back together. If the connectors have rubber seals on them, smear the female half with dielectric grease to fill the holes, smear the rubber seals and plug them back together. See if this helps chase some of the Gremlins away.

Latebird, thanks for the advise. I went back and unplugged every connector one by one, cleaned them and added dielectric grease to all of them. When I got done it fired up immediately on the first try. Once in a while it acts like its starving for fuel for about 1 second then is back on track. I still cannot get the dtc codes to show. I have the trans in N, turning the key to ON 3 times within 5 seconds and just have a normal display. What am I missing.?
