That was until the past weekend, where I had the pleasure of scooping
out water from the rear passenger foot well. I have never seen so much
water in a car, after looking on this forum, I found postings that
mention a drain hole under the car battery. It was dark, I took the

EPS,ABS,Check Engine lights illuminiated, no gear selection indicator
