Note: I was caught in a flood prior to this
car ran fine. Then later I smelled electrical
burn smell with smoke emminating from
front left area of tire well. Internal roof lights
& inside door lights stopped and car cut off.
repeatedly bu restart and finally after a few
weeks would just crank but would run.

Sounds like something got wet and shorted out. You'll have to check the wiring harness in the area that you saw the smoke. Keep the negative (-) battery cable disconnected until you find the short. We don't want a fire!! HTH. -Jim
