Try not to endeavor to begin the auto! It's enticing to turn the key and check whether the auto still works, however in the event that there is water in the motor, endeavoring to begin it could harm it hopeless.
We've laid out a couple of fundamental checks underneath, yet in the event that in question, its best to have the auto towed to a technician.
Decide how profound the auto was submerged. Mud and garbage as a rule leave a waterline on the auto, inside and in addition out. On the off chance that the water didn't transcend base of the entryways, your auto will most likely be fine. Most insurance agencies will consider the auto totalled (harmed past monetarily sensible repair) if water achieves the base of the dashboard.
Call your insurance agency.

Check the various liquids. Fuel frameworks on late-display autos are generally fixed, yet more established autos may need their fuel frameworks depleted. Brake, grasp, control guiding and coolant repositories ought to be checked for defilement.
Check the greater part of the electrical frameworks. In the event that the motor looks alright to begin, check everything electrical: Headlights, turn signals, cooling, stereo, control locks, windows and seats, even the inside lights. On the off chance that you note anything even marginally out of order - including the way the auto runs or the transmission shifts - that could be an indication of electrical inconvenience. Take the auto to a repairman, and recollect that the harm might be secured by protection.
Check around the haggles. Before endeavouring to move the auto, search for flotsam and jetsam held up around the wheels, brakes and under-body. (Set the stopping brake before slithering around the wheels!).
