My Nissan X-Trail 2005 won't start after washing the engine bay.

After washing the engine bay of my 2005 Nissan X-Trail it won't start. It has power, but when I turn the key there’s nothing, not even a click, click sound you get. My guess is that I’ve drowned they coil.

You’ve possibly drowned something. I doubt it’s the coil, because it seems for your description that the starter is not working. Dry everything in the engine bay that could have been affected by water and see if that cures the problem. You could also try jump-starting it.
