2004 GTO wont start!!!

Ok well, I took my gto to the car wash. Raised the hood and pressure washed everything. My car was running btw, and then proceeded to wash under the car. I went to the passenger side, an pressure washed under it right where the door it. Then my car killed. I tried starting it up, but all I'm getting is a clicking sound. I have power, but wont start. Its not my battery, I had it tested. I thought I could let it air dry, but its been three days now and still just clicking sound. PLEASE HELP!!

Sounds like the starter solenoid is possibly fried. How many miles are on the car? I would try tapping (sometimes it takes a hard rap with a hammer) on the solenoid that sits on top of the starter and see if the car will turn over. This is the first thing to do with the problem of getting a click when you turn the key. You probably need a starter replacement!

Starter starts the car and then disengages, it's weird since the car stalled by itself while already running

So, are you now saying the engine is turning over but not starting?? Or are you still getting just a click?
