Losing power when it rains


If only when it rains, you are looking at an insulation or wiring issue.
Check the heavy battery wires for any signs of splitting or poor connections. Also check the engine to body earth strap.

Engine light came on


That often has to do with emissions problems. Has it been raining lately? The check engine light on my Saturn will come on when the humidity is high after heavy rains.

Check the voltage coming out of the alternator with engine running it should be 13.0-14.7 volts.Usally when the battery light comes on the voltage is to low or not charging.If voltage is below 13.0 volts or higher than 15 volts then the alternator is faulty and will need to be replaced.

The check engine light comes on in the rain and the engine will stall and run rough.


You have moisture getting into the ignition. The check engine light is coming on because the engine is stumbling. You can have a local detail shop detail and seal/waterproof your engine compartment

Check engine light comes on when it rains and after starting, engine will stop. This doesn't happen often, but when it does, it is usally moist conditions such as rain or snow. Odometer has over 200,000 on...


You need to see what the check engine light is on for. The check engine light can come on for literally 1500 different reasons. something dealing with moist conditions can usually be tune up parts, spark plugs, wires coils etc.

The rain is the culprit. It studders, misses, dies. Won't start.


Check the distributor cap and rotor. A usual culprit in wet weather. The CHECK ENGINE light is most likely a side effect. Have codes checked to be sure. Hope this helps

1992 accord hard starts,engine light, steam off hood in rain


The check engine light comes ON when the cars computer(the ECU) notices any kind of electrical problem in car.In some cases the check engine light comes on then turns off.In that case the exact error is not getting confirmed so this happens.But once the problem gets confirmed the engine light will remain permanently ON till the problem gets solved.In this case i suggest you to get your car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free.In case in the car scanning,if any error code is retrieved then you can check which part is faulty as per the error code.In case if no error code is retrieved then you can continue driving,till you get any confirmed indication. ---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
