More then likely, the water is hitting something electrical in your engine. Make sure you have all your protective covers installed. What have you checked?

Jeep wont start when it is damp or raining.


It is probably your ignition wires. When moisture can penetrate the wire it shorts is out. Check them for cracking and especially where they are close to the exhaust manifold. I hope it is due for a tune up, this should take care of the problem. If not, you may have a dirty connection in the ignition circuit. Check all you connectors for corrosion and spray them out with a penetrant/moisture chasing lubricant.

You should never wash your engine. It can really mess with the computer sensors. However since you now have a problem in the rain, I'd change the wires, cap and rotor. (likely old and sensitive to humidity) Also, look at your ignition coil in the dark...if you see any spark or electrical "haze" where the coil wire goes in, change the coil.
