I have a 2000 Hyundai Sonata with 96K miles on it. My car was parked in a low lying area and during rain it got submerged upto half the wheel level. There was some water on the floor of the car (around 1-2 inch). I removed the car from the spot within 15 minutes of this happening. Now the car won start, the engine cranks like usual but does not turn over. The mechanic says that crank sensor has gone bad. But he also added that even the computer might be damaged in which case I am looking at 1500-2000 dollars. Is the computer located at such a low position in car ? Also when I removed the car the Air Bag warning sign had come up even though there was no physical damage to the car.
