Electrical problem
2000 GMC Safari 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

My van wont start whenever the air is damp. I have replaced the spark plugs and wires, rotor, dist. Cap and the mass air flow sensor. Do you have ideas on what else I can check. No codes show sense it hasnt started when it is having the problem. On dry days it starts right up and runs good.

Thanks alot, man! You probably saved me hundreds that a mechanic would have charged. I sprayed water on the crankshaft sensor on a dry day like you advised and it didn't start. Put a new one on and sprayed it and it started right up. The real test will be in a few hours when it rains, but I'm pretty sure that fixed it. You know what you're doing! Thanks again.

I was wrong. It is raining today and the van would not start again. The only thing I havent replaced is the ignition control module. Any other ideas?

Check out vehicle control module left side engine compartment. See if rain water getting on VCM. Pull connectors see if its wet.
