Seems that the fuel pump quit, check for fuel pressure, check for spark in the plugs and the fuel filter.

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.

I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

No spark wont start

99GC (no engine stated of the many) size is? and is it V6
got water where it dont belong, my guess power washer (100x worse)
so get it dry .
check fuses. first
then scan it, with OBD2 scan took, crank for 5 seconds. (at least)
RPM on the scan shows valid rpm over 250rpm ? good,
no, bad crank sensor (or soaked to bones)
then release key
then dont turn key off yet
got DTC'S? stored, during the crank,
like bad CKP bad CMP,. etc or dead RPM
bingo its telling you why no spark, believe it.

that is how its done,

1993 dodge dakota v8 4x4 runs bad when engine get up to opperating temp.. the truck runs great for about two miles then starts to miss and has nopower. fuel pump went bad I replaced it. the crank sensor...

Sounds very much like catalytic is fouled, blocked.. Works fine when cold, then bogs down and even stalls when heats up. May start and idle but wont go when you press gas.
Did this come on worse over a couple three days? I would get the cat checked for flow.

3 days ago, i went to work no problem,had to move it after 6-7 hrs of time, would not turn on 2 try's, started like normal on 3rd. 2 days ago i drove it locally a couple of times, no problems. today...

I ran into the problem and it was corrosion on the battery terminals. on the inside against the battery. also check the the terminals for good connection.

Got a low votage msg couple of weeks ago and replaced the battery. Got the same msg a few weeks later; went away for a couple of days and when I came back car would not start. Took it to Pep Boys to run...

If the battery is not recharging while the car is running, bad connection between alternator and battery. If it is dying while sitting, but charging while running, something is draining it. What? Who knows. It could be anything from a clock on the radio to an engine fan that doesn't stop. Look for anything electrical that is on when the car isn't. ANYTHING. Even the smallest light can pull more juice than you'd expect. Good luck.

No power to starter

Depending on how long it's been since it's been submerged, I'm thinking wiring is still wet. I had a car get flooded to the floorboards and it took drying out for three weeks before it would start. I used to take a hair dryer to my old Mustang....I'd even take the distributor cap off and blow it in there. Another option is to open the hood in the bright sun and let the sun dry things out for a few hours. It might take more than one I said, it took 3 weeks before my car would start again.
