    usually for the first 10-20 minutes of driving on a wet day, the turn signals won't work. aftertha, they start to, which is what confuses me. They do not appear on the dashboard or light up in back, nor does the clicking sound occur.

    thanks

    typically in the first 10-20 minutes of driving on a wet day, the turn signals will not work. neither the dashboard, back lights, nor clicking sound work during this. after that, though, they work normally: dashboard, lights, clicking and all.

    Do you see turn signal indication on your dashboard? Does the dashboard indicator blink quickly?

Humidity causes water condensation on the contact points of the indicator blinker circuit. The blinking is the result of two electromagnets, which switches the front & back lights alternately. However due to collection of water on the coils of the electromagnet, short it thus not charging the magnet which attracts the relay turn by turn. With dead electromagnet the switching does not occur at all. The box is generally supposed to be water proof, which might require a change of the seals or replacement of the entire mechanism( only the box which has the electromagnets)....sodeep

There is a factory recall for this problem. The wires temporarily burn out. Look online under recalls for this vehicle and the information will be there.

How to fix car brake jam due to not used in rainy days & humid environment.


Sounds as if you have a sticking wheel caliper, or the brake pedal itself is not returning all the way. Try pulling up on brake pedal. If this works, lube all pedal movement points. Otherwise, jack up front of car and see which wheel won't turn, and fix caliper.

Car sputters and engene light comes on in the morning of rainy days only


check the BAP (barometric air pressure sensor), rainy days mean odd Barometric pressure, so the sensor could be faulty, a simple multimeter can show you what voltage it is putting out, and replacing it on a rainy day might show you that it is faulty as well
