Default faulty front height sensor after car wash.

Hello guys,
I recently acquired a LR3, 2005,HSE. I took it to a washing bay and they used the high pressure machine to clean out dirt as those guys always do to make their work easier. A few meters from the washing bay, the height sensor failed. Is it possible that the high pressure water could have damaged it? Is it common for these machines to damage the sensors? or am just being funny...

I've used the high pressure do-it-yourself car washes like that countless times with no bad results. Nozzle in the wheel well, underneath, etc cleaning off all the road salt they love up here in New England.

My guess is the sensor was on its way out already/there's a frayed wire that got wet and shorted out on it

Probably be fine when it all dries out.

I'd check the wires running through the driver's side wheel well though, to see if any wires are frayed, exposed or if the connections are otherwise damaged. It's connected to the frame, front driver's wheel well...hard to miss.
