Nissan X-Trail 2015: Engine not starting straight away

I just washed my 2015 Nissan X-Trail. Washed leaves and dirt from under the bonnet and wet the motor. I tried to start my car but it didn't start straight away. It took a couple of times to start. I then drove my car to the parking lot. After about an hour I tried to start my car again and it won’t start. The ignition lights are on, and all the electricals are working. Just when I push the button to start it feels like it doesn’t have enough power to kick over. Is the motor just wet and needs to drive or do you think there is something else wrong with my car?

It’s possible water has got into something in the engine bay when you were cleaning it, and I doubt it would come good just by driving it. Get it to a dealer or mechanic to have it checked.
