07 Rubicon Engine will not shut off!

So I went wheeling earlier and took some water in. Enough that it was up close to the bottom of the seat cushion but not as high as the shifter.

15 minutes later, turned off the jeep and turned it back on like normal. An hour later I stopped to get food on the way home. I turn it off and get out of the Jeep and notice it's making a weird sound. Then I realized that the engine is still running. But I had the keys in my hand. Confused the hell out of me.

All the electronics in the Jeep were off, like they should be, except the engine was still running, not even the cooling fan was on. If I put the key in and turn it the electronics come back on and I can drive away like nothing happened.

The only way I have been able to turn off the engine is by disconnecting the battery. I'm going to let it be overnight and hopefully it was just caused by a little water and it'll dry up.

Has anyone experienced this issue before or does anyone know of a possible fix?

I had a similar problem except it was just the cooling fan. I didn't hit water though. It resolved itself, but yeah I thought my jeep is possessed as well. Freaking PCM! I have chased down the wire harness and relays with no other explanation other than it must be the PCM.

Your problem specifically, I have not heard of before or experienced myself.
