BR Got flooded on 8/13/2016. My car was parked in the garage. Got about a foot and a half of water in house. Interior didn't get wet,but my rear back floor got wet. Car lights won't come on. Key won't turn once put in the ignition.

wipers don't close all the way

Every couple of secs car brakes by itself.

in most cases when i first get in the car the air will work but if i turn the car off even for 2mins it will not come back on for about 15-20 mins


the cooling fan stays on and a/c blows hot air intermittently but fine after overnight parked and then does the same process again. no codes seen when checked by holding the rest and cabin buttons in.

Car was driving fine all of a sudden abs ESP light comes on and car starts to drive 2230 miles per hour revving at 3000 RPMs new brakes put on front never had problems like this before took it to a shop that says no signal is going to the transmission on the dash there is no indication of comfort or sport, the indicator beside the time clock show c or s anymore. Any ideas ,
