I can't start my 156
My engine cut out when I drove through some very deep water and now it won't start again.
When I turn the key in the ignition it just clicks and doesn't even attempt to turn over. The battery seems charged and I have tried to start with jump leads anyway but it's still the same click noise. I also tried jump starting it down a hill with plenty of speed and it still wouldn't start.
I have left it for a few days to try and dry it out but it still seems the same. I'm worried the engine could be damaged. I'd like to know if there are some simple checks I can do first before calling out a mechanic to have a look.
Please help me as the train to work is killing me!
