My pilot was running fine and after last night's storm it will not start. It has a brand new battery and alternator. It makes no noise at all when trying to start it, but all the engine alert lights come on which I have never seen before (VTM4) etc. Could it be a cracked distributor cap that water got in? Thank for suggestions.

Not a thing anymore.

If you're sure all your cables and connections are in tip-top shape (could have been loosened or damaged when installing your new battery and alternator), look at the starter.

Try to check if you have a loose or corroded connection cable as it is one of the reasons why a car won't start.

If you have a voltmeter measure battery voltage to help rule out the root cause. Good battery will measure ~12.6V.

Check/Charge battery.
Clean battery terminal/connections.
Inspect ground cable, battery to frame and engine to frame. Clean contact points.
