    Larry,

    Before starting a vehicle that has been submerged in water, it would be good to have the fluids inspected for water intrusion. The starter or electrical connections may have been damaged.

    For your safety the vehicle should be towed rather than started and driven. The brake hydraulic system may have been damaged as well. We have an opening on Wednesday, May 4th, to do a thorough inspection. Please call 253-538-1441 to reserve your appointment.

    Thank you,
    Brennan
