Check that there is no water in the h/t leads (spark plug leads)
then follow them back to a disy cap its kind of pull this of spray some wd40 or equivalent water dispersing spray into it and wip out properly this should solve your problem.

If you got water in your engine and then ran it, that is not a good thing, no matter if its dry now or not you probably have some damage to your engine.

Beetle 2000 wont start after washing engine 2 days ago. Can you please help?

How did you wash it? Pressure washer or just a hose? Any chemical cleaners uaed? Usually it is just water that got somewhere it shouldn't be but that usually dries out in a day or so. If you used a pressure washer it is possible you damaged a connector or wiring or even just forced water do into a connector that hasn't dried out yet.
