Question about 2000 Saturn SL
When extremely damp or raining all of my lights flicker on and off rapidly. What causes this? Have had 2 garages check it and cannot find the answer. Is very annoying and I am afraid I will get stopped driving when this happens by law enforcement.
I have seen cars with lights full of rainwater. Check all lights for evidence of getting wet, dirt may be inside. Once you find a suspect, unplug it and go through a carwash. Once you are sure, change the light fixture.

Check all your connections under the hood, and check to see where the water is penetrating, check especially the battery connects. Usually the cause of a no start in rain/high humidity conditions is that the spark voltage is arcing to the engine metal rather that to the spark plug because of worn out spark plug wire insulation. You may be able to observe this when the engine is running at night in a dark location when it is wet outside by opening the hood and observing for arcs jumping out from the spark plug wires. The distributor cap could also be cracked which can also short the voltage to ground. It is suggested to replace the spark plug wires and look carefully at the distributor cap for any signs of a crack.
