Car Won't Start When It Rains...

Every time it rains my car will not start. After it has cleared up and dried out i works fine. I went to a mechanic and was estimated almost 600 for a tune up and coil replacement. Does that sound right?

SOURCE: starts hard when it rains

Try to check distributer cap. It may not be sealing tight as the clips used are notorious for not sealing properly. Also check your wires while you are at it.

SOURCE: Starting my car when it rains...doesn't happen, why?

i did have problems with my car not starting in the rain. after changing the distributor cap and HT leads it still. My last thing to try before taking it in was to change the ignition coil. I ordered a new and installed it and it started right up! it has rain a couple times since then and it's still starting! so i'm hoping it keeps working. hope this helps anyone.

SOURCE: jetta 95 won´t start

Moisture in your ignition system can cause this to happen , start with a cap/rotor and wire replacement. More then likely this will cure your rainy day blues.

The rain water is fouling the old coil wire, replace the ignition wires.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

My 2004 Alero has a problem when it rains. It won't start after it was rained and it seems to me that something is getting wet under the hood and causing this that I have to let it sit after it rains,...


I doubt anything is getting wet, but you could be right on a bad connection. You could have enough humidity in the air after a rain to cause a weak connection to fail completely. It could also be a faulty relay.
Someone would need to figure out if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when it fails to start, then track down why.

Won't start was running fine in rain next day no go


It is probably water has gotten into one of the sensors and needs be disconnected and dried out. the only way to distinguish which sensor is to have a tech connect a diagnostic meter to the vehicle.
