04 pt cruiser wont wtart

Sounds as it you have an electrical short somewhere and a connection to the Power steering pump. Did you purchase any gas while going to store? Some under ground fuel tanks can get water into them this time of year especially. If it is flooded, it will not start. Hold gas pedal to floor for 15 seconds and release, then try to start. If it does, it could be as simple as an O2 sensor or Heater sensor causing the problem. Good Luck!!

My 2000 dodge caravan wont start after going through a flood what could it be?

the ignition wires will need to dry out, if they get soaked it will not start unless you have good wires, when they start to get old they are more prone to not working when they get wet.

this is providing the starter cranks the engine and it did not hydro lock from water getting into the engine.

2000 corolla flooded and wont start

how high was the flooding, does the car crank, lights come on, are all fuses ok? did any blow? have you changed the air filter?

if it cranks try using WD40 or a water dispersant equivelent on your leads and distributer inside and outside the cap. then take to every electrical connection you can with it. if still no start you will need to start dis assembling the interior to see if water got to the computer.

Went thru a flooded road about 8"deep stalled out

You filled the cylinders with water. You will need to remove all the spark plugs and crank the engine with them out, to push out the water. you will also want to replace the air filter as it is probably saturated with water.

Flooded car

first, not to panic. Unless you submerged your engine there is only a matter of some water getting on your ignition syste. Don't pull any plugs, won't help. Basicly its a dry out thing. The steam from your exhaust definately filled tthe engine compartment with plenty of moisture. Your car is new enough to where s little moisture will be overcome. If you stalled in water that deep, there is also the issue of having filled your exhaust system with water.. The car will not start with the exhaust blocked with water. It will be obvious if thats the case. It will blow water from tthe tail pipe. If it does start, any waterr will blow out and what doesn't will go away when everything heats up.

2000 Dakota 3.9 V6 wont start just cranks, has plenty of fuel

I agree that it's probably the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS).  Without the pulse from this sensor, you vehicle will never start.  Sometimes water from a leaking water pump will run down onto this sensor and cause it to fail.  
You can go to MSN Auto for your vehicle and under the "Reliability" tab  you will see the same thing regarding the CPS (listed under Engine issues).
