I drove my Sentra through a puddle during a storm. It stopped in the middle of it and it wasn't even that deep. The battery fuse went out and got replaced and it still won't start. What's the issue?

Do I need a new alternator or starter? The

as well.

Your electrical connections and wires might still be wet.


Thanks Tom
