Security light on and err 55 on odometer

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

The light is solid

2008 Subaru outback

Ok

I​t sounds like you have a immobilizer issue causing the no start, the error code in the dash is SS representing a speed sensor fault which would not cause a no start,my first question would be do you have another key to try?

Not with me. I am in MA in the snow storm and we also had a flood. The water didn’t go over the tires but got pretty high.

W​e sometimes have problems when the floor gets wet soaking a tpms module located under driver seat this module if shorted can cause many problems including shorting which can cause a no start and different electrical concerns,it would be best to get it to a dry garage if possible I know this storm is going to be pretty severe.
