I have had this issue with older mazda GLC cars as well.

The usual cause is water getting into the distributor cap and not allowing contacts to be made to the spark plugs.

Where all the spark plug wires come together, is the distributor cap, unclip the cap and I am betting you will see water and or condensation. Wipe off the cap and rotor and this will hopefully solve the issue. Best bet is to replace the cap and rotor about 30$ total. This will give you a new rubber seat and water should bot make its way in.

Let me know via way of feedback if this solution helps you out.

dear friend-first of you should not use quick start on a petrol vehicle.also the rain has nothing to do with starting up,you problem lies whith starting feul,i think you must take your vehicle for a diagnostic check to get some fault codes and work from there.

Car wont start in the rain


Hi, your disributer cap must be letting moisture in or it has a hair crack.
REplace it with a new one & also spray some sort of water repellent (WD40) onto the new cap inside & out.
Also smear some grease around the rim of the cap to stop mositure getting in.
This cured a VW that plagued us every time their was either rain or fog.
Also check you rotor arm as well for hair cracks or just replace it with a new one.
