Car was flooded by water and won't start

Asked by May 17, 2015 at 07:52 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We were caught in a flood in and the car stalled. Water was so deep it was coming inside
the car. We pushed it to higher ground and it won't start even after it dried out for three
days. I checked the fuses that the description had starting or key. It won't even turn over
or make any noise. All lights and insturment panel is working.

Most likely a fuse or fuses blew because of the water. You'll also need to remove the spark plugs and crank it over without them in to blow out any water that's in the cylinders. Do you have full coverage insurance? If so, contact your insurance company and file a claim. They'll have it fixed for you. You'll have to pay the deductible but at least you can get your Hyundai fixed. HTH. -Jim
