Can you give some details on how you washed the engine bay? Did you take a hose to it and soak it down? If so, we need to let it dry out for a day or so and try it again.

If this doesn't work then we are going to have to find out if we have spark or not. Which means we are going to have to check the ignition coils and make sure they are not filled with water. You need to remove the coils and see if the bottom of the boots are wet. If they are do not remove the spark plugs or that water will go down into the cylinders. You will need to use compressed air and blow it out and then remove and replace the plugs. You can try and dry the coils and we can go from there.

Let us know what you find. Thanks
