Partial or complete flooding of a vehicle can cause a wide range of issues in a vehicle. Hydrolock is a common issue in such situations. In that, water enters the engine through the air intake and causes severe damage to the pistons and cylinders. Water and metal do not make a good combination, which results in rusting of crucial parts. Electrical wires of the dashboard, radio, infotainment system, windows, doors, seats, and lights get affected too. Moving parts like brake, clutch, and accelerator too get damaged.
