Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I washed the car and the engine off, then drove to the grocery store. When I turned the car off. It would not start back up. It will not even turn over. the car has not been washed in about 3 months, and I've never washed the motor. I'm not sure where to start as far as what parts to check or buy. Please help

Check the battery cables to see if they are tight and / or there is corrosion, also check the battery. Washing and not starting may be coincidence.

Check for a blown fuse in the underhood fuse box. Especially look at the big "MAXI" style fuses. Most likely something shorted out when the engine compartment was washed. HTH. -Jim
