buckchote69 Posted August 21, 2006 Share Posted August 21, 2006 hey guys,i got a 1997 defender 90 i have a problem that most of you guys can probably help me with. a few days ago i went offroading wit a few buddy's. we found a few puddle about 2 feet deep a little less. so we drove through them a few times. as soon as i got out of the puddle for the last time befor heading home, the engine just quits on me. all the lights switches and anything electrical still worked. so i pop it in park and try to start it again. instead of starting, i jsut get a ticking noise. and once it makes the "ding dong "noise once it lets me crank. but it wont start., i checked everything from disconnected wires and waited for everything to dry no difference.i checked so see if i was getting spark, and i wasnt. i also pulled out all the spark plugs and cranked it to see if water got in, and there was nothing that squirted out.i had my truck towed back by my buddy and waited to see the next day. so as i try to start it today it does the same thing, but this time it wont crank , and now it wont let me take it out of park.(i had fully charged the battery the night before) . when i try to take the key out of the ignition it wont let me telling me that it thinks im not in park.(wich i am) the only way i got it in neutral before was by putting the diff in N. and now none of my dash lights come on. i am clueless on what i should check for. i was maybe thinking of finding a way to bypass the restriction on the transmission thing. but i dont knwo where to look to do so. i was hoping any of you guys could help me out. and suggestion would be appreciated THANx!!
