I found out today that I have a leak in both sides of the windshield allowing water to access the fuse panel on the driver side by the pedals. We've nver seen water inside the vehicle, but tonight I pulled the panel door and panel back and found water in and around the fuses themselves. Mine is causing relays to continuously click, radio pops then shuts itself off, check engine light now on, and airbag light now on. Today is Monday, and it rained all day yesterday, (Sunday) Hence the problems today. Might check for water around the panel after the wash or big rain. Good luck!

If you lift your hood, check the wires that are for your windshield wiper fluid, I had the same problem and because the wires were being pressed against the molding water was able to drop down onto the engine. When ever it rains really hard felt like the truck was going to cut off. But when the sun was out my baby would pur like a kitten.

What could cause engine misfire in heavy rain & carwash?


Ignition wiring system Error codes may identify more specifically. It could be as simple as a plug wire or distributor wire not installed tightly enough and water that normally would not enter the connection. Could be the Distributor cap is not on tight enough. and or the connection to the coil. Water usually affects the high voltage components. Double check all the spark wiring. I'd also take it to your favorite auto parts store for a code read.

This is most likely happening due to water splashing up onto your serpentine belt causing it to slip and not spin the alternator fast enough.

A possible reason as to why this occurs not and not before could be a worn belt.

Having this happen won't really hurt anything, just dont rev the engine during the drying process as you might throw the belt off.

Engine cuts out during heavy rains. This started happening a couple months ago during a heavy rain. As soon as the rain lets up (within mile or two) the engine settles down. Light to moderate rain does not...


If the check engine light is on have it scanned at Auto Zone to pin point the problem. If the check engine came on then went off it stored the code in the computer you can still pull it up.

Engine cuts out during heavy rains. This started


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT WITH AN ASTRO VAN. THE PROBLEM WAS WATER WAS GETTING INTO THE FUEL PUMP CONNECTOR UNDERNEATH THE VAN, NEXT TO THE FUEL TANK.THIS WAS CAUSING A SHORT, NOT BAD ENOUGH TO BLOW THE FUSE, BUT ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE PUMP TO SHUT DOWN. BEST WAY TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM IS TO FIND THE CONNECTOR AND SPRAY IT WITH WATER WHILE THE VAN IS RUNNING. ALSO DO A WIGGLE TEST, THIS IS DONE BY GRABBING THE HARNESS TO THE PUMP AND MOVING IT AROUND, IF YOU HAVE A LOOSE CONNECTOR OR A BAD WIRE THE VAN SHOULD SHUT OFF.

Ram Hemi misfire after rain


Try spraying water while it's running on the engine, plugs, wiring from a spray bottle to see if you can locate where it might be acting up from!

If this only occurs during heavy rain you have a problem with the drains around the bulkhead. Alternatively the heater matrix could be leaking. Check to make sure you are not loosing coolant from the engine. If you find you are constantly topping up the coolant then heater matrix is suspect.

02 VW Golf runs rough after sitting in the rain.


Water is probably leaking onto your engine somehow and shorting out the plugs.

Jetta GLX 1998 (old body), when it rains heavy, car run rough


Sounds like you need new wires and or cap and rotor, had the same problem on my jetta 1.8L when I would drive it in heavy rain it would bog down and misfire. The water blows threw the rad right onto your distributor and wires causing the short (old and cracked or just defective). Try it out I'm sure that will fix it.
