Hi, if it was deep enough water you may have gotten water into the starter motor. The starter motor will need to be tested to see if it is getting 12V to the starter solenoid when the key is turned to the start position. If there is 12V to the solenoid you will need to replace the starter.

Let me know if you have any questions.
