Jetta will not start after going through water puddle

Asked by Apr 22, 2015 at 11:18 PM about the 2007 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition PZEV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have  a 2007 Jetta with 148K miles ... I went through a very deep water puddle.  Car was running GREAT before the water puddle - now it will not start - it cranks but makes a short grinding sound.  Any ideas?

Water got into some wiring connections or your engine/transmission. I'd let the car dry out first, then check your oil and transmission fluid for water and possibly change.
