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.

I just wash the engine and car dose not want to start I have bmw 530I....plz help.

It should start after the ignition system dries out. Next time you wash the engine, leave it running and it should be fine.

My 93, 318I won't start

if you think your cambelt has broken ,when your trying to crank it over ,your engine should turn over faster but will not start.,to check if your fuel pump is not working,turn the key whithout turning over the engine and listen if your fuelpump buzzess than you know your relay is not faulty,.i gather your bmw is a E39 model fitted wid a distributor cap. check your ignition coil plug pins for rust,or your modulator cables/plug connection.

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.

I think your problem might be your fuel relay which is situated next to the fuse box in the engine compartment.
