Coil pack, spark plugs, plug wires. in that order. inspect coils, look discoloration on the back side. look for fouling on plugs.and when you get the car running spray salt water on wires to see if arcing. and use oem or performance parts. cheap aftermarket will only cause more problems.

When the engine management system (EMS) detects a fault the car goes into "Limp Mode". This allows the car to be driven, but without any performance so you are not stuck at the roadside. EMS problems sometimes come up for no apparent reason, doesn't always mean there is an actual fault and it may just be a dodgy sensor. Unfortunately, you will have to get it checked out in this case because the car is virtually undriveable as it is.
Remove the first oxygen sensor when engine is cold and spray 1/3 of HEAVY DUTY DEGREASER block the hole and start for 10 seconds Repeat that 3 or 4 times to clean the catalyst converter ,clean the EGR valve for mail function .check your air filter .
If your air filter is not fresh, the difference in the weather conditions actually causes the air filter to restrict the flow of air into the engine just enough that the super sensitive system you are driving notices it.
There are also other sensors that pick this up causing a performance change in the operating system. If your filter has recently been changed then of course other than being soaked with water in freezing temperatures, this shouldn't be a factor. Just a consideration:
this is also a sign of the car going into the "limp" operation and could also be caused by something getting wet, such as the ignition system. Double check your seals and panels that block moisture from your engine components. Wiring can be sprayed with sealers to help in preventing excessive moisture if your wiring is showing any age.
have you checked under the hood ? to check if the drivebelt/s for power steering pump is there and if your engine is diesel the power servo pump may be same belt ? hence loss of both these functions? as you say going thro puddles?? deep ? could have caused belt to come off it will be obvious to see if belt is not there ? hope this helps
Sounds like an electrical issue maybe the plug from firewall to cab is loose or on computer is loose, sometimes those coonections or pins get loose,i had a new car with 200 miles on it and it went dead in heavy traffic,had to get towed to dealer they found loose connection!!!!With audible noise when happens tells me its wiring,check all connections and wires to connections make sure there not loose!!!Best of Luck to you!!!!!
the check engine light is flashing to alert you to the fact that the engine has a missfire in the ignition system, don't continue to drive this with the condition or u can overheat and damage the catalytic converter.
