Volvo Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is Jose Sebastian, your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.
I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.Dear customer, I understand your question The problem is that when the electrical systems of the bulbs get wet it affects a large part of these systems, so I do not recommend that you keep trying to start the vehicle because it generates energy in the circuits which can cause shorts in them.I do not know when the storm happened but the ideal is to wait 3 to 5 days for the vehicle to dry very well and try to start because if a circuit is wet and you try to start it can cause shorts.
Then dear customer If the vehicle still does not start you should check all the fuses located under the engine compartment and under the dashboard as it is very likely that several fuses have been blown more accurately in the starting system.
If after changing the fuses the problem persists,I would start to worry a little that one of the electronic modules of the vehicle has been damaged since these are very delicate, so if the problem persists I recommend you perform a computerized diagnosis to see if error codes are generated referring to some module burned. It is very likely that it is simply the burning of a certain fuse or there is a high probability that when the vehicle is dried well, the shorts are removed and the vehicle works normally again.
