Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

How high was the water?

How fast were you going?

Did it stall in the water or once out?

Will it at least crank?

Which liter engine?

Thanks, ***** ***** you just splashed some water up onto a connector and this caused a resistance issue, which prevented the computer from knowing how to control the engine. Often a vehicle will dry out and resolve itself. You can speed up the process though. The first 5 connectors to unplug and dry out with compressed air and alcohol are the crank sensor, cam sensor, MAF sensor, throttle body, and PCM. If that fails then we need a scan tool to see which codes are stored.
