If it rains and I can park the truck where the front is downhill and it will not crank. The motor won't even turn over. But if I back it in to where the rear of it is downhill it does fine. Trying to get on idea of what could be going wrong. I had a computer diagnostic done last week and the only thing it showed was a bad connection to my starter. I got it repaired. Keep in mind the only time it does this, IS WHEN IT RAINS.

From the first response, what is the P/N switch?

Also on the Diagnostic, the only codes it pulled was P153, P0463, P0748, and P1406. Could any of these have anything to do with my problem?

It wont doing anything when I turn the key to the cranking position. All my dash lights and inside lights come on. It dont click or anything, like the battery is dead. I have had my battery and alternator checked. But it only does this when it rains.
