Question

what does it mean when you go through water as in, it has been raining really hard and there is puddles. The air is on and the belts start to squeel and your car battery light comes on and it feels like for a split second the car is shorting out? The battery light comes on and off. I drive a VW Jetta 2002 wagon with 59000 miles on it. Thank you

Answer

It is hard to tell unless driving the vehicle, but it sounds like the alt belt is slipping and the engine may be taking water into the engine, if this happens it can cause engine damage
