Exclamation 2016 G 550 Wrecked

Anyone with experience please chime in

This g wagon 2016 has been sitting for a while and I think the previous cover allowed some water to seep in and get into the computers in the dash ( the sunroof and front windshield is busted out).

The mechanic tried to jump it yesterday to move the car and I believe he tried to do it with the auxiliary battery behind the seat as the driver side - left of the radio console etc started smoking.

Anyone have any suggestions on what the problem could be or had this happen before?

Car turned on previously when we jumped it from engine bay , but now it will currently not turn on

Roof crush usually means total loss. Plus you have electrical gremlins from water intrusion. Do you intend to rebuild this?
