Depends on how badly it was flooded. It may not run again if like 2/3 of the vehicle was submerged! Personally, I'd have it towed to the Nissan dealer for diagnosis. It honestly could be anything! If you decide to fix it be prepared for this vehicle to give you never ending trouble! Especially with all the electronics in today's vehicles! If it's not cost prohibitive to get it running, I'd do so, then trade it in! HTH. - Jim
