EL Fairmont Ghia - Wont start :(

I just cleaned the engine bay with a gerney (high pressure water) and now it seems the cars battery is dead. lights are dim at best. is there anything to check? im fretting a bit! sure i can throw a charger on in the morning but the battery as been perfect, never missed a bit. drove it this morning so it aint been stagnant.

Re: EL Fairmont Ghia - Wont start :(

nothing wrong with water in the alternator, its better than power stering fluid....... ive always washed my engine never had problems. But id say from the sound of it you have just been unlucky... jump start it or charge it, and check charge rate of alternator
