    Default Flooded 2013 Corvette

    2013 Corvette has been in flood. Water was 24 inches deep. Car will not start,flashers on all time when trying to start car. Car will not turn over when engaging starter. Windows came down when battery jumper was put on battery and now will not go up. High beam lights indicator stays on. Water was over seats but not up to dash. Please help!

    I'm sure some more electrically inclined folks will chime in here, but unfortunately you have significant electrical issues to deal with to get everything working again. There are multiple systems in these cars that are all interconnected to a large degree. There are quite a few systems that sit lower than the dash.

    It is going to take a lot of troubleshooting by someone with some experience with a Tech 2 to go through everything piece by piece to get all the damage repaired. It can be done, but it will take a lot of time and be costly.

    You may have already heard this, but any flood vehicle is almost always considered a totaled car. I have never seen one that wasn't. Most likely all your computers and modules are bad and eventually with enough time your harness's and pin connectors will be too. All you can do is try to dry everything out, but even if you do, and most components function initially, you will never know for how long.
