Chev 2000 Diesel Cube Van - Wont start after sitting in the rain

I have a Diesel 2000 chev 16ft box cube van.
When the unit is out at a jobsite and sits in the rain all day, it will turn over but the truck wont fire. The strange part about the whole ordeal is that the fuel gauge on the truck spikes well past full when you turn the key on and get ready to start the truck. The one time we had the vehicle towed to a nearby dealership and then looked at the next morning, and the truck turned over fine.

The chip in your ignition key is bad or most-likely the computer that controls the anti-theft part of your van, called PATS. Not an easy fix unless your mechanically inclined and know how to operate a multimeter...write back if you are...otherwise, find a mechanic good in electrics and tell him what I said (so he doesn't waste YOUR time).

You will have to have the dealer reset the security light to restart vehicle.Check all engine and chassie grounds because this is where the lighting would exit the vehicle.It sounds like a ground burnt through.

Have the resistance checked on your ignition wires! When it's wet, the wires break down or don't allow enough voltage to get through to the plugs. Therefore the spark is weak & the van won't start. You may have to change them. Good luck!
