    Did you have the emergency brake on, and it won't release now?? Try to back up a couple of car lengths, then try forward.

Jack it up, remove wheels, spray rotor with wd-40 or equalivant and see if you can turn by hand if not hit it with a hammer till its freed up. make sure its in nutral and rear wheels are chocked. spray off ALL penetrant oil with brake cleaner before you put it all back together

I have a 98 honda civic with a 1.6 that won't start after I washed it any suggestions ?

You may still have water either inside the distributor cap, or down in the spark plug holes, causing the spark to short out. Also I have run into some that get water into the crankshaft position sensor connector at the back side of the crank pulley. Good luck.
