now it wont start

today i thought i would clean out the muck and flies out of my rad so i got my hose and gave it a clean through. started the car and was ok. came back to it 5 hours later and now it wont start. no code light problems but will make a strange buzzing sound from behind the dash in mar position. car turns over ok and belt was changed recently. is there any way damp will get to any parts?

the classic water problem -?

If water splashed around the top plastic engine cover, then it has a tendency to fill up the plug holes for cylinders 1 &2. This causes grounding of spark plugs from coil to ground and result is no spark left for the spark plugs. Easy check so take of the plastic cover an dthe coil rack and take a look.
Otherwise you could have splashed other parts, but generally that the weak link between water and the Twin Spark engines.

Good luck!
