Water in fuel

Starting a few days ago I received a ''water in fuel" message. I immediately drained some fuel but no water was found. I did notice that the water in fuel sensor had come apart, maybe from hitting some road debris, I don't know. I replaced the sensor but the Water in fuel and Reduced power warnings will not go away. Can someone tell me if there is a special procedure I will need to preform?

My procedure would be to call the dealer and make an appointment. This can be really serious and expensive. Reads like I am being a wise guy but I am not. Could be a simple fix or a fix and a call to your insurance company. Nothing to screw around with, in my opinion.

I just found the problem, there was moisture in the plug-in connector. I used a Q tip and compressed air to dry it out and the warning went off in under a mile while driving. I knew it couldn't be to serious because there was not a drop of water in the fuel I had drained. Thanks for the reply!

Spray some WD-40 in the plug next time. The WIF sensor is two metal prongs that complete the circuit when water touches both prongs. The "WIF Seensor" is not fancy.
