i have found 2 areas that cause issues such as you are reporting.
one is poor voltage. check the connection at the starter motor between the alternator and the battery.
the other and perhaps more likely is a wet ECU.
the ecu box is under the windshield on the passenger side, access under the hood. this are can get wet ad corrode an ECU.
remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off and clean any corri=oded and wet areas with alcohol and a tooth brush..be gentle.
i would look for a way of mounting the ecu so that it doesn't lay on a flat surface that gets wet...
