Power washed the 500 now it won't start..

Washed the mud off my 500 was planning on bringing it to the dealer tomorrow to get some stuff done to it, now it won't start, it'll spin over and sometimes backfire, one or twice it ran for two seconds...but won't run. What could I have gotten wet to cause this problem? Gonna let it dry overnight and try in the am once I grease all the zerks and put the tires back on.
