My VW went through a large puddle and died. Now it won't start. What should I do?

Check and see if water has gotten to any of the sensors preventing them from working correctly.

Hope water has not gotten into the cylinders. Check the air cleaner to see if it is soaked. Have the compression tested if necessary.
