On my way home we had a heavy rain and I had my gas powered golf cart on the trailer headed home. Now it won't start when I press the gas pedal. Any ideas?


Water probably splashed and got into areas. You may need to park it in the sun and give it a chance to dry out.

Hey Tom if its rain, look to see if moisture is affecting wires a spray of WD-40 in and around electrical could really help and wont hurt any thing WD stands for =water dispersant.

Why does the rain cause my 2000 bravada not to atart?


Seems like an electrical issue. One thing that would bring down the engine is a crank sensor. Maybe "the car jerks" is a seperate issue. First thing I check is the spark plugs to see the spark.

92 Honda Accord Wont Start After Rain (especially mornings)


Good Morning,
Check for moisture in the Distributor and use a blow dryer to dry it out. You may want to consider changing your Spark Plug wires to a "Moisture Resistant" type. Please let me know if this helps you and thank you for using FixYa!

2000 GMC Safari AWD Suddenly won't start


I have a 2002 Safari with around 220k miles. I went out of town for several days and when I came back it would not start. I eventually got it started after about an hour. This happened again when I did not driver it for a week. This time I could not start the van. The fuel pump was spinning and it was getting gas. I took off the engine couling inside the van and inspected the rotor and cap. They were completely corroded. I put in an after market set for less than 30 bucks and the van started right up. I plan on getting the wires and plugs replaced but I don't think I want to do that myself due to tight access. Good luck.

Car takes ages to start if it rains overnight


Hi ....... Sounds alot like you have a grounding problem on your HT leads (central one from coil esp'ly). At night when it's dark open the bonnet/hood and start the engine. Look for any sparking or arching from plug leads, coil or ignition box. Stop engine. Find where your leads come from, four will come from a central point and make sure all conections are tight. Even remove and look for corrosion, only take off one at a time to avoid confusion and when you're happy that they're OK buy some WD40 and spray near coil and over leads and allow to dry off. This will help to prevent moisture to penetrate and will cure the problem short term.
Let us know the outcome.

1999 chevy astro van 4.3 will not start in morning, after cranking for several minutes it will finally turn over and run fine the rest of the day could it be a bad fuel pump or oil pump


I have the same problem, I replaced the fuel pump. Did NOT solve it. i was told that it is a computer problem. The computer is not sending electric to the fuel pump, by cranking it several times the oil pressure builds up and will over ride the computer and send power to the fuel pump. This is a common problem on these asrto vans.
