red fuel light with water around it

hi, have a 03 wj , 2.7 diesel. the red fuel bowser light has come on 3 times now, once driving in heavy rain. when i restarted 4 hours later it had gone out. now in hot dry conditions with only quarter of a tank it has randomly come on twice now, and then goes out next time i run. i have googled the warning lights and it says its a water in the fuel!! . can anyone advise me on what i should do next.
i rung a jeep dealer
and they told me if it goes out don't worry about it!!?

concerned

Re: red fuel light with water around it

Not familiar with the diesel, but when im not wrong, the water in fuel sensor sits in the fuel filter housing. Maybe just draining the filter housing will get rid of the water, or the filter must be changed as well. There can be water in the fuel tank as well.
