Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
I washed out my car in a creek and it sat for a few hours in water up to the starter. Now it wont start it just goes click click I replaced the starter and charged the battery but still it just clicks. Also the neg cable got real hot I know the engine is not siezed because it did trun over couple of times then it went back to click click. Is there anything else i need to replace to get the starter to crank the engine???? Please help
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 day...like I said, it took 3 weeks before my car would start again.
