Hi Christie - first try to avoid driving through
flooded roadways as this can cause electrical issues. If you can let the
vehicle dry out and it still doesn't run, then you will have to take it to
a ASE certified technician that specializes in electrical issues.
Moisture is the enemy to electrical.

When you ran through the puddle, it is possible water got onto the cap, or wires. If this is the case, when it dries out, it should start again. Or maybe the force from the water shifted a wire from your battery cable. If the car does not start after a few days, you need a tow.
