Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Being in a flood this can damage electronics on your model here.I have seen this several times before in the past.Where i would start is with checking all wiring and wiring connections under the vehicle and on the engine.If the water made it inside the vehicle you would check wiring connections for corrosion or damage as well and replace any wiring connections that are found to be damaged or corroded in any way.This would be the first place to start.

From here if any fuse panels or electronic control units or computers had water in them or show signs of water damage these need replaced as well.The water causes a corrosion that shorts out the electronics to where unfortunately the affected electronics have to be replaced.I have had to do this on several models in the past before that had electronic issues like this here due to a flood issue.This can be a long process to locate all of the damage and repair it but this is what has to be done before you connect a battery and try and start it.If you connect a battery with only some components repaired or replaced you risk damaging these new components if anything else is damaged or corroded.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
