Wink Re: Consumer Court rules against Maruti for refusing repair due to hydrostatic lock

Why don't manufactures fix a sensor somewhere in engine bay at maximum water-wading level so that when that sensor is submerged in water car's engine and other electricals will automatically shutoff and will not allow a restart in next 1 hour or till manufacture's intervenes

Yes, I too think so. Back in Kochi our normal well has a Crompton Submersible Pump submerged 10 years back and till date running without any problem. That too with a 230 Volt normal grid electricity directly going into it.
