After getting wet 2014 Sportage will not start

Asked by Sep 30, 2015 at 10:03 AM about the 2014 Kia Sportage

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

while driving through high water last night my 2014 Kia Sportage stalled. I
have power to everything but it will not start. It does nothing when I push the
start button. Is there a fuse or relay that i should check?

I checked the oil and Air cleaner box and there is no water in either.
Thanks
Mark

you probably have some wet electrical connections somewhere. Maybe in the alternator/starter area. You'll have to let it dry out.
