There was a thunderstorm in NY 2 days ago, and my car was filled with water up to the driver seat. I had taken the water out but now I have noticed that the the SRS (blinks) & Engine Check Soon (ON) are illuminated while driving. How can I fix this? Thanks for the help, Im new to this helpful community.

wow, up to the seat is alot of water. I hope it didn't do any real damage to any wiring. Have you tried unhooking the ground wire from the battery for a couple minutes, and then reconnecting it ? If not, then try that first and hopfully your check engine light will go off. That is unless there is a real problem of some kind, i hope not. good luck......P.S. I'm new also

Glad i could help a little. I'm thinking that your srs light blinking is only the dummy light shorting out from water damage to a wire or something. probably nothing wrong with the srs. I hope you get it straightened out. Good luck........
