Go to AutoZone and have them scan the car for codes (they'll do it for free). This will tell you what has tripped the check-engine light. Post the code(s) up and we'll take it from there. If the speedometer doesn't work, it's possible that you soaked the speed sensor's electrical connection and shorted it out. It's located on the transmission, so it's easily soaked when you go through water that deep.
