Suggested Solution

Suspect the crank angle sensor or connector.
Possible water ingress at the multiplug.
No way connected to either the radio or heater.

I would agree with 1/4 drive on this-the radio and heater been on when you jet washed will be incidental unless you flatten the battery.
but you said you swapped the battery so I would look at the air intake assembly first including the snorkel and check whether the filter is soaking wet and the housing.
Secondly check relays or wiring junctions where you may have jet washed for dampness
