I'm a bit freaked out, 'cause there's moisture all over the under seat area, which also houses most of the car's ECUs and such. I think I should try to discharge the battery before I disconnect the cables, but I'm afraid to turn the ignition on with all that moisture and overvoltage. It really looks like that thing could blow at any moment. I'm thinking of neutralizing the moisture/acid(?) with baking soda. Any thoughts or experience with this?

To be on the safe side, better check your drywall in that thing as well.........
