06 die after going to car wash

Live about 5 miles from car was. Die on way home. Had water in fuel light on.
Change both fuel filters. Put some 911 in top filter housing. And some in the tank. Both batt die while doing this. Forgot to turn key off from getting towed home. Hooked jumper up to buddies truck (driver side batt to driver side) truck rolls over good but will not start: dunno: any buddy have any ideas

did you prime your fuel system? i would also suggest recharging the batteries, and see if your getting a rpm response when cranking. water may have damaged your CPS and the water in fuel is another issue, you fixed one but maybe it masked another?

but mostly, i would suggest recharging the batteries and getting them up to their cranking power.

When you changed the lower filter did you open the fuel/water drain plug?

I don’t have a computer to scan with and no we did take the plug out. I figured changing the filter would have removed any water that would have been in there..

If you change lower fuel filter won't that remove the water or am I missing something?

took the drain plug out tonight. and it looked like water came out ???
was going to take the top filter out to see if or how fast the top filter would fill up. and would you know it. i broke the &$^&^@!%#! top plastic filter cover.
but the top filter did fill up fast so i guess when i get the new cover will see if it will start
