Unless you own an old Toyota Hilux, which is virtually indestructible, your car will most likely be affected if flooded. Ajarn Veera mentioned that if you cannot move the car to higher ground away from the floods, you should disconnect the battery. It will help to protect the car from being short circuited, especially since cars nowadays are controlled mainly by electronic boards and chips, and less so by mechanical parts.

Once the floods have receeded, do not reconnect the battery or attempt to start the car, as that could damage the engine and fry the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) that controls the car. Instead, you should have it towed to a good garage, where they will professionally dry and service the ECU. Replacing the ECU is very expensive, and this will help to protect your investment.

You should also change the motor oil, brake fluid and all lubricants, and the engine must be serviced before the car can be used again.
