Hello everybody...

Yesterday night during a very heavy rain in Athens I crossed part of a street with water 25 cm deep. Engine stopped. I pushed the car to park it and today, 24 hours later, I tried to start the motor with no success. What I get is loud "click sound" form the starter with not a single rev. and a yellow "motor shaped" light at the panel. Any ideas or do I have to tow the car to the dealer?

Very useful post!

You could indeed have hydro locked the engine.

Remove the park plugs and see if there is water in the pistons. You may be lucky and turning the engine over with no plugs in may get all the water out and if no valves / conrods etc are bent it may run again.
