Whenever the humidity is high such as 70% early in the morning my pickup engine will not start. During the normal days the humidity is down 30% engine start in one self no problem comes through.


run the fault codes to check for sensor problems
It could be the volume air sensor ( air density sensor) that is a problem
I am inclined to think that the problem is more electrical as high humidity allows condensation in a distributor cap that is shorting out the spark
when the engine is hot ,that moisture is gone but on cooling down ,condensation again forms causing the fault

Sometimes the computer starts a test run automatically. Once the engine didn't start. Later it did.


No this is not a "computer running a test" You need to have the fuel pressure tested when you have these no start or hard start events.

1999 Toyota 4-Runner sometimes won't start


Sounds like the starter is getting ready to go out. I'd look at being ready to replace it soon. If it is a stick shift transmission car, you can PUSH start the car, but you probably want to get it done before this happens. This is what mine did, click, click, start, over a period of about 2 weeks before it finally went out. Replaced it, starts first time every time now.

Hope this helps.
