I own a 2005 Pontiac G6 V6. Recently i was at wal-mart and i ran over a puddle while it was raining. My car shut-off instantly and never started since. I had it towed home and I took off the starter to make sure the water didnt damage it. When i took the starter to autozone they tested it and said it was perfectly fine. I put it back in and it clicks but doesnt start my car. i changed the oil and there was no water in it. I checked all 3 fuse boxes to make sure it wasn't that. I went to Pontiac dealership and they told me there is a reset button somewhere on the car, one guy told me in the trunk? I think it is a emergency cut-off switch or something. I have no warranty and i own the car now so they wont help me. The relays and fuses are all replaced with new even though none were popped or broken.

That's really weird...how MUCH water was it, really?

Even if a lot, it's still strange that it would die afterwards, and I'm not sure of all the various reasons...something shorted somewhere, unplugged, loose, or something. Hmm. An ignition spark issue in one way or another, somehow, I'd think.

I checked everything... and it is all fine.. starter and battery checked out fine at autozone. No spark is coming from the wires... but since the car is new would it even shoot spark? BTW i am very knowledgeable in cars but this is by far the weirdest motor lol :D

I am going to take off the distributor if all else fails and replace it. I turn the key and it just clicks and then auto clicks... car doesnt turn over or even sound like a turn over.

I did charge the battery... im thinking its either the computer or the distributor... something is shorted somewhere. Where is the computer located... I am going to unplug and plug it back in... I dont know how to reset it so.... thats my only option.

Ok, i was just reading... this car is equipped with an anti-theft igntion immobilzer which means my car can be locked of its ignition, therefore no spark... How do i bypass this immobolizer crap...? I want to unplug the computer to see if it will reset itself.

The engine immobilizer is only turned on when the vehicle is locked and the "anti-theft security system" is turned on. To turn this off, you just have to unlock your doors with your remote transmitter. If your security light is still flashing, it is still on, and you have a computer issue. If the security light is not flashing, and the engine doesn't turn over, then your ignition key may have been de-programmed. GM or a locksmith that is familiar with pass-key III can fix it. If that is not it, then it has to be a mechanical problem, which i believe your first place to look would be your distributor cap/rotor, and go from there.
