How did the water get into the fuse pannel? Was this vehicle a flood victum? Or, just some rain. It kind of makes a difference on what I'm about to tell you. I guess if it was a little water from rain the first thing I would do is check the relays.They are nothing more than little switches ad water can have an effect on them. The points in them could be corroded, weaken the springs, etc. Start there. Then check wire connections for corrosion, and loose or broken wires. Do you have any type of repair manuals? If you can, identify the relays, many times there are several that are the same and you can move them around and interchange them to help you find a bad one. Other wise there are some electrical tests which you can perform on them, but you will need some electrical test equipment. Let me know if this fixes your problem or if you need to know how to test the relays.
If on the other hand this vehicle was flooded, you have a lot of checking to do, starting with the computer. Do you have a diagnostic tester? You may need one.
I hope this helps you.

2000 hyundai accent wont start it has new plugs and wires when I push down on the fuse block it will start and then when I let off it dies is there a answer for my problem please


Based on your description I would say there is a terminal in the box that is not making contact with a fuse or relay, or a wire is almost broken from a terminal.
I would check each circuit with a test light to see what is not being powered.

1998 mitsubishi mirage wont start?


check if the fuel pump is working, if you have someone near the tank and someone else crank motor you should be able to hear a bzzzzzz rom the tank from the pump. if no noise is heard then hit or thump the tank, this can make a fuel pump start to work again, if it starts, then the pump is almost dead

6.5 tubbo diesel died and wont start back


Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
