I have been having problems in heavy rains it miss out. now the engine won't crank. 2004 durango. the battery is good.


The moisture in the air is an obvious indication of a poor electrical connection/contact. You must inspect the ignition cap and rotor and replace if excessively worn.

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn


You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

The 85 chrysler got wet from heavy rain now it won't start the battery has been charged and jumped the lights work but dash indacators don't work and the starter doesn't make a sound nothing lights up...


I'm sure the car has seen heavy rain before without causing any problems. Did rain get inside the car or the car driven through high water? Check the fuse panel for evidence of water contamination. Look for burned fuses or corrosion. If you can't find any fuses or relays that got wet, then I would look to the ignition switch.

Jetta GLX 1998 (old body), when it rains heavy, car run rough


Sounds like you need new wires and or cap and rotor, had the same problem on my jetta 1.8L when I would drive it in heavy rain it would bog down and misfire. The water blows threw the rad right onto your distributor and wires causing the short (old and cracked or just defective). Try it out I'm sure that will fix it.
