SOURCE: Car wont start in the rain

Hi, your disributer cap must be letting moisture in or it has a hair crack.
REplace it with a new one & also spray some sort of water repellent (WD40) onto the new cap inside & out.
Also smear some grease around the rim of the cap to stop mositure getting in.
This cured a VW that plagued us every time their was either rain or fog.
Also check you rotor arm as well for hair cracks or just replace it with a new one.

You may have a bad wheel sensor or broken ABS sensor wire.
Go to Auto Zone or Parts source and they can scan the computer on your can for free.
If the computer detected any one of the sensor going bad or is bad, it may be in the memory and you'll know if it is the ABS sensor or the ABS module it self.
Good luck and hope this can save you some money. I had the same problem and it was my wheel bearing going bad which messed up my ABS sensor.

SOURCE: abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

SOURCE: the engine kills when it's wet outside (raining or just rained)

It is likely that your front oxygen sensor is getting wet.

Truck not stoping and anti brake is working.


dosen't stop at all or just slow?, if the abs is working then you should feel the pulseing in the brake pedal just before tire lock-up, the tires will not lock-up with abs fully funtioning unless all four tires or two are in lock-up depending on the abs application, if abs fails it reverts it self to regular braking ability, hope this helps

Anti-lock brakes activate on dry pavement


First, is the ABS light on? Does it come on when it's doing it? Make sure the brake fluid is full, and the brakes are still servicable, ie, pads still have meat on them. If so, the abs control module or a speed sensor might be on the way out. This is a safety issue, and I would recommend getting the truck to a good mechanic to have it checked out.
