What did he wash, the OBC or the ECU? Try a daughter next time. They will never wash an engine. Mine probably does not know where the engine is to wash. She is 35 and I love her but would never let her touch the M.
Things should dry out, but I really am not a professional mechanic. Calm down and breath deep. This can be fixed, just not in a hurry. Sounds like the starter is not getting fire. I am sure our cars have a starter but the only time I ever thought I actually saw it was when I changed the intake gaskets. It's down there somewhere on the port side of the engine.
Running it will probably help dry things out, particularly if you are in a cold clime. Spray moisture displacing foofoo stuff everywhere.
Otherwise, if things do not fix themselves, I am still good for the 5 large.
