As I read the OP, the truck was purchased after the 5 hour saltwater dunk. Correct or not? If the truck was purchased and insured , then into saltwater, by all means, use your insurance to cover your loss. If the truck purchase was after the saltwater, you have little else to loose but your time, efforts and $ to replace parts.



So what happened to the truck? What saltwater pool? Caught in the surf? Was it completely submerged?

I read it as he bought it and then sank it, so if that's not the case and it was for some reason bought in this state, then yea, no harm trying to dry it out, but if it was purchased dry and running and is now an aquarium feature, then the insurance should deal with it because it will never be "right" again.

That said i would love to hear the story that goes with this thread. fresh water? i could see several ways that could pretty easily happen... but salt water? short of getting stuck on the beach at low tide im not sure what else would be a likely cause.

You guys that are talking of turning it in to insurance are funny. What do you think happens then? They crush it? I bet the thing was flooded for whatever reason and went through the insurance company already.

To the OP: New wiring harnesses and modules from gm would be a good place to start. Probably somewhat of a pain getting it all to work again, but if you bought it right...

Not sure about a diesel in a truck but with diesels in a boat that has been under in salt water the engine is pickled. He can look it up. The good thing about a salt water pool is that its relatively clean via ocean water.

I think that at that point its not the OPs issue, and since the truck is totaled they cannot legally sell it as a used vehicle and must sell it as a salvage title so at least the next owner would know they were in for a shit show and can make the decision to buy or not to buy with that information in mind. I am aware that some insurance companies kind of play it a little loose with this kind of thing, but either way its not the OP's issue which is ultimately the point of this thread.

A SALT-WATER VEHICLE ?

Just as a point-of-information, rats got into my 2005 3500 crew/long-bed dualie. They chewed thru wiring in the engine compartment, causing "shorts" that ruined the computers (some of you guys think we own trucks....WRONG....we own a bunch of computers that are bolted to some wheels....!).

My nice "mint" ( less than 80,000 mi.) truck became a "constructive total loss", when the cost just for the parts ( again, only "damage" was to the wiring and various computers ruined by the short circuits - putting a full twelve volts to where those volts weren't supposed to be....) exceeded ten grand.

I appreciate the problem..there are a lot of older "wrench turners" like me who don't fully grasp how labor-intensive and sophisticated these computers - with - wheels are.

I agree with some of the other posters - we don't have enough info. on this OP and his post to rule out it isn't some kind of troll or kid with time on his hands.
