It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.

Battery is in trunk compartment. Must be positioned exactly and locked down. Not easy to do and keep in position unless using BMW battery. There is a slight size difference (BMW wants to sell their batteries - at inflated price.) Save yourself the headaches and get BMW battery. In the meantime, just move your battery position a little bit until trunk light comes on. Car will start if trunk light is on - unless the problem is really something else. Hope this helps. Let me know.

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.

Have you tried jumpering the Start relay on the firewall in the engine compartment.
It has 2 large battery cable size wires to it, and a smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire, I think is Orange or Orange w/ a color stripe.
If you apply +12 V to the terminal that has the 16 AWG wire on it, does the truck turn over ?
If not it is the start motor relay that is bad. If so, it could be the ignition switch, the Digital Trans Range Sensor on the side of the auto trans, or the Clutch pedal position switch on the manual trans
