You should apply dielectric grease to the insides of the spark plug wire boots liberally. Also, you can spray WD-40 inside the distributor cap to displace moisture which will allow your car to start.

    Easiest way...Have a friend turn the key to the on position (but don't crank engine), while you listen by the gas tank for the fuel pump to kick on. It is possible that you got water in your fuel as well. Try putting a 1/2 bottle of Rubbing Alcohol in a full tank of gas (if your tank's not full, do some math), and run that through. That will help burn the water out.

Left my window down in the rain and now it won't go up


It may have slid off the track from the water. If it doesn't start working once it dries out, a day or two depending on the weather, take the door panel off to make sure it is on the track properly and that the cables/wires have not corroded.

Sounds like the alternator is going out the slow way.
Youre kinda lucky because almoat all alternators go out without warning.

Everytime it rains real hard. car won't start, after 2 days it then starts.. Everything works good..........Then a month later when it rains again, the car won't start for another 2...


Obviously water is the cause. Make sure all hood seals and underbody splash shields are in place, check firewall main connector for security. After it rains (without driving it in rain) check floor mats inside for water. A possible windshield or dash leak is allowing water into electrical area near instrument cluster (windshield may need resealed). Lift hood and look for water on any electrical connections disconnect dry, and seal with tune up grease from parts store.
Good luck

My 92 Honda Accord will not start in Hot weather {90 to 100 degrees plus} also I noticed when these episodes occur the drive indicator light, on the dash will flash off and on. The engine will turn...


a common problem with this year accord was the main relay. they have bad solder joints so when they heat up, the solder joints didn't make good contact, and you have a d4 blinking and no starting problem.

above is a link on how to locate and remove the main relay, and if money is an issue, use a soldering iron to do the link below because a new main relay is around 50 dollars. its a video to resolder the joints on a main relay of a honda civic, but the same concept applies.

Abs and brake,battery lights won,t turn off .


I have the same van with similar problems. I had a small leak from the lower left corner of the windshield that dripped down into my fuse box when we had a heavy rain. My defrost light and dome lights got stuck on. We had to remove the fuses and let the box dry out. We had to take it to someone to find the leak and caulk the windshield. I don't know if this might help but you might look into this????? Good luck.
