    Will not start after washing!!!

    TTSE started right up last time.. I started it, about 1 1/2 weeks ago.

    Decided to wash it today ( a rare event ) and pushed it out of the garage, I did not start it.

    Gave it a very thorough washing.  When done ... it won't start.

    Display comes up normally, no error messages.  Battery seems to be OK.

    When I push the start switch, I hear just a small click.  The display does not change or dim.

    I've done no other sleuthing so far, have a fan on it and battery tender, will see what happens tomorrow, if no joy I'll begin diags..

    BUT... anyone else experienced this and have any guidance?? 

    Many thanks,
    Jan...

    Tomorrow will be another day and it may already work.

    If it doesn't work, blow hot air with a hot air gun or hair dryer over all the relays and right pineapple.

    Having the problem show up after washing may just be a coincidence.

    Can you tell where the "small click" sound is coming from ?  Is it coming from the starter solenoid, located in front of the battery ?

    How old is the battery?
    Have you done a voltage check yet?

    It is possible that something got wet with the water.

    The click sound could be from a relay, starter solenoid, or the starter motor itself. If I do not touch any cables or electrical part, check the 40A fuse that is just above the battery, it could be that it has got water or it has dirty contacts, also check the battery connections, re-tighten its two screws and that's it incidentally check the battery voltage.
