IGNITION

1995 Daihatsu Feroza

Electrical problem
1995 Daihatsu Feroza 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 71990 miles

Hi - My vehicle is in the Caribbean - if it has stood outside overnight and there has been rain - it will not start. As soon as the sun comes out for a while it starts Ok. Have tested with Timing Light in HT lead and don't get any HT.

If it didn't rain in the night the vehicle is just as likely to start without any problems.

No signs of water anywhere - am wondering whether it is just the temperature - when vehicle does start in these circumstances, I have seen a weak spark with misfirng and then a strong spark comes up and all is well. Could this be the igniter being affected by the temperature
