Hi, my name is***** this vehicle was submerged automatically you need the alternator, starter, ECM PCM and likely many sensors will have been damaged as well as a complete service of all oils. The instrument cluster is also likely shorted internally. You can likely locate these parts both new and salvage on the web.

Any of the places I know of will be in the US. Are you looking for a US vendor to buy these from?

Click these links. They can also put them on a locator for you to find what they do not have.

It was not resolved because I dont know which of the that needed let me know which of parts do I need to fix the vehicle
Jeep Mechanic: Daniel Wilson,

If this thing was submerged under water it will likely need all electronic control modules and components. you will likely have more problems down the road with corrosion in the wiring harness as well.

All the links you sent said they dont have parts at stock a the moment
Jeep Mechanic: Daniel Wilson,

They may be able to put them on a locator for you to expand a global or national search. Or you will have to Google jeep and auto salvage yards to do a search until you have success unfortunately that is how the used parts business works. If it were my vehicle I would part it out and not fix it. The parts and labor to fix this will likely cost more than what the Jeep is worth in most cases.

I am going to opt out as i am out of suggestions. Maybe another expert can offer more help. You will need to go to Google.com and search for jeep salvage yards. I have no control over what stock salvage yards have around the world. A locator is your best bet. It might take some time to hunt this stuff down. Otherwise you will need to buy new parts from Jeep/Chrysler.

Buy New parts and you will have and find them quicker at the dealer but you will pay the new price. Sorry there is not better news.
