Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had several inches of water as a result of flooded street. how do you determine if your air bag computer is damaged, if the computer is under the seat? The insurance is saying nothing is wrong with the car. it runs and doesn't smell. I'm not convinced all is well with the car.

There will be an air bag light, even if the computer is in total failure, as it is a flood car you may not have any problems now but give it time you will. If in doubt have it checked over by your mechanic, tell him it was flooded by water and you want it gone over, if you feel it is worth the money then get rid of it now while it is running good.
