Possible clock spring

So just like the many others, I mistakenly left my top down during a torrential downpour. Now a week later my jeep is going haywire. Windshield wipers, windshield wiper fluid pump, the horn, and lights instantly kick on the second any electrical power turns on and will not turn off till I disconnect battery power. Neither the heat nor air conditioning turns on anymore. I pulled the circuits for the horn and windshield wipers knowing it would only be a temporary fix. From everyone else's posts I've decided it's my clock spring having issues. Is there anyway to test this before o start ripping my steering column apart? Could it maybe be my circuit board?

Just went through a similar issue. Pull the battery cables for a few hours. Pull a part the instrument cluster/gauges and disconnect the cluster. Blow out all connections. I also disconnected and reseated all PCM connections. Give this a try first.
