If you sprayed water into the engine bay, as beatupchevy suggests, you probably drenched electrical items that need to be dry to work properly. If this was a normal car wash, that probably still happened, but unintentionally. If you have access to an air compressor, spray air throughout the engine compartment, or just let the car stand with hood open in the sun, until the engine starts.
