Hello!

This is my first post so please don't crucify me if it's in the wrong section. I got caught in a flash flood. The water came into the car, but didn't get higher than 1" below the top of the front seats. The battery is good (it has been checked), but it won't start. The headlights stay on when the battery is in. Water didn't get in the transmission--we checked.

Please help out a 21y/o full-time college student who doesn't want to take it to a shop (because..money..)

I realize this isn't a whole lot of information, but anything you may know could help.

Thanks!

Well one inch below the seat means the BCM was submerged. Pull it out, dip it in alcohol let it drip dry, then put it in a plastic bag with a cup of dry rice, leave it for 24 hours then plug it back in and hope you got all the moisture out. This will be hit and miss depending on how long ago the car was in water.
