How is that car's roof lights still on? Wouldn't it have shorted out with the hood submurged like that?
You'd be surprised.

I saw a film of testing they did locally, ran a car off the pier into the water to see if you could escape with power windows. Damn funny watching the car sink with the windshield wipers working as it settled on the bottom. The wipers did seen to lose their effectiveness under water, they did not appear to be keeping the windshield very dry, but they were operating.

Bottom line, power windows worked, wipers worked. Engine did stall, however.. that was in fresh water though, salt water would be more conductive than fresh water I believe, might not with in the ocean.
