That buzzing noise you hear is likely one or more of the relays chattering. basically you will have to replace all the ones that got wet inside. locate the fuse panel under the dash and the one in the engine compartment. put your finger on each one to located the one that is stuck. replace that one first. incidentally you can use wd-40 (penatrating oil) to get rid of the moisture as it doesn't conduct electricity.

how deep of water were you in??if the alternator belt got wet as did all the belts.. they wont "hook up" untill they dry enough to grab..did your battery light or check engine light activate? this means your car was running on the battery until the belts dry out enough to reconnect without sliding over the pulleys..when this happens all power goes to the engine..

I would start by checking main fuses under the hood. water could have cause a short also check battery cables to see if they are heavy enough to carry the amp load needed to start the car. factory cables are not heavy enough after a few years.

My dashboard wont light up when all my lights are on i am travelling at night on my renault laguna


Hi,
Try to turn the rheostat switch, that dims the light in the gauge, it might have been turn to the least position.
If there are still no light the dimming switch might be broken. The interior light works w/ any lighting system for switches and illumination inside the car.
Check the fuse, 15 amps, red color, "acc light", in the fuse box.

Hope that helps you out!
