Not sure this will help, but try this. You need to open the distributor cap, and dry it out. If water got in it, it will prevent you from starting. Best guess right off the bat here. hope this helps

1999 FORD ESCORT ZX2 radiator hoses swell and burst


you've got a serious overheating issue creating the pressure. Your temp gauge must be reading hot too.
If not, then you have engine compression pressure getting into the cooling system through a blown head gasket.
Replacing the cap will not help.

Washed the engine now it wont start


Most likely you will just have to wait for it to dry on its own. It is best to wash a engine while it is running so the ignition components stay dry.

Problem with 2005 Jaguar XJ8L


Hi Tracy.
Yes its a new one to me too !
I presume its an automatic model ?
Possibly the gear selection inhibitor switch is at fault, due to water ingress ?
Have you tried starting in neutral ?
Do you hear any clicking from the engine starter at all, when you turn the key ?
If you do, then suspect the starter motor at fault.
I see you posted this on Dec the 6th, so expect you have located the problem by now, if not hope I have been of some help.
Best Wishes !
John.
