Its very possible the engine computer was damaged.
Do you have all of the warning lights on the dash when you turn the key switch on ? Do you have spark to the plugs and fuel pressure ?

1987 Chrysler 5th Ave. Worked before Storms came through now just turns over but wont start! Lighting struck about 50 feet from the car and now car just cranks over, gets Gas, and Spark But wont Start....

if there was alot of rain the cap and wires may have gotten soaked and need to be dried out or even replaced even if they were replaced in dec.its possible that the lightening strike being so close to your car,it may have affected the computer to control things in the proper order and sequence or sensors and wiring,even if it was not a direct hit.remember lightening has way over the voltage a car can safely handle.its probably a good idea if the first part of this is good to have a shop check this out and it may be covered under your insurance.
