Hi,can you tell me how much water was in the car?
Hi,in this case I would suspect checking all wiring out of the ignition switch harness I suspect you'll find some corrosion,in fact you may find quite a bit of corrosion.Because this vehicle was flooded I suggest you call your insurance company,most times vehciles that have that much water intrusion are considered a total loss because the wiring harnesses hold that water in and creates long term problems.
O.k ,w need to start by removing drivers kick panels and get a good look at the wiring out of the ignition switch,fuse box and major connectors going out to the engine.How much more do you know about the car did it run after the flood at all has anything been replaced that you know of besides the fluids.
Yes,the VIN needs to be encoded to the new ECM.I would also check the body control module found on the drivers side under dash and the transmission control module because theses may have taken in water also,the body control module id the gateway module for communication so its very important,the TCM is mounted just to the left of the brake pedal the body control is to the right of the steering column.The body control has the immobilizer unit (security) built in so this would need to be programmed also if needed,thanks
