Question about Toyota 4Runner
I washed the motor and it die out now it will not turn over to start
Usually just letting everything dry will do the trick. As long as you didn't spray water into the intake.

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

Get an airosol can of damp start spray and spray it around all the electric's that got wet. It still could de the distubter as its not a big job better to take it off and dry it out. Cheers

Sounds like you created a potential short when you washed the engine. one of your sensors may be tempoarily shorted. I would wait for the water to dry out and see if the problem is still there. if the check engine light came on you could have the codes pulled by autozone or advance autoparts

you got the electrical system wet.you suppose to cover alternator,cover the ignition coils and the under hood fuse and relay box.if not water will short out ignition and electrical system.try to dry wipe some of the water up using paper towers on ignition coils and fuse and relay box.if water got in alternator it will short out voltage regulator.
