Exposed wires are never a good thing. You might have blown a fuse. Disconnect the battery, check the fuses and replace, fix the wiring or connector and let it dry out. Same for the engine compartment. Reconnect the battery and hope for the best. If not, have it towed to your nearest garage for repair.
Just getting your motor and its related wiring/accessories/battery, wet can in fact result in a no start situation. First, when you turn the key into the on position (last position before crank), make sure you see your check engine/PGM-FI light flash on and then off (along with the related click of the main relay). If the relay is bad, the may crank but not start (no fuel), may not crank but still actuate the fuel pump, or may literally do nothing (but perhaps a minor click and stick). Now if it is not the main relay, you can explore the wires and other systems relatd to where you soaked the motor bay. If the main ground, or the ground often found at the thermostat/cooling jacket, is wet and corroded...it can shut down a once super reliable Honda Accord. I have had about 5 Accords now. Love em.... Still have 96 V6!
