Water locked help please!!

I have spent hours searching through threads and it seems my lude is water locked. Last night I ran through a pude that was probably about 1ft deep and died as soon as I hit it. I quickly turned off the ignition hopped out of the car and pushed it out of the water. I then proceeded to remove the spark plugs and check for water. Only one well had water inside from what I could see. Many threads say to remove the fuse for the fuel and crank the car to shoot the water out. However whn I turn the ignition on my car all I get is a click and all the lights in the car and dash get really dim with a slight buzzing sound. What should I do.

I am not much of an expert in this however i can try by pointing in directions.
that click is most probably the main relay when you switch on ignition..if you get that click while trying to start than that is definitely the starting relay.
also check your fuses in the fuse box located in the engine bay.

you may also want to check the battery termination just in case the terminals are weak.

hope you get your ride running again!!

Im not sure if this would work, but what i would do is disconnect the battery, remove all the spark plugs and the distributor cap...then just let the car fully dry out before trying to start it again (electronics really only fail because they short out and water will defiantly cause that) im not sure where you live but i know here in Georgia it gets pretty hot during the day so a full day or two of sun would possibly dry everything...once dried replace everything and give it a try.. and while that day or two passes by just look at all the electrical parts under the hood (fuse box, starter, etc) and check for water.

Good luck
