Unhappy FX35 VDC and Service Engine Light on after driving through water

Hello Folks,

I am new member here and wanted to ask for some suggestions. I couldn't find an exact answer through my search.

I was driving my 2011 fx35 tonight on an unfamiliar road during real bad weather (lot of rain) and ended up going into a huge puddle of water that stalled my car at which time the VCD, SLIP and service engine light came on. I was able to start the car back immediately and slowly managed to drive out of the water during which time the car started to jerk like it would stall. I later drove the next 3 miles going about 15-20 mph during which time the car was still a bit jerky. Once I reached a safe location, I turned off and on my car and now only the service engine light is on. I immediately checked underneath my seats and mats and didn't feel any wetness. I drove about a mile and was able to reach 40 mph and the ride was smooth but the service engine light is still on and now the idle RPM is 1000 (no ac or anything on).. I decided to drive it later in the morning hoping that something that might have gotten wet will dry off by then.

Do you all think I might have unintentionally damaged my engine? I restarted it about 3 times after this and cranked right up but that jerky motion has me worried.
Should I try to reset my service engine light?
Should I just go straight to dealer and see what they say?
