Truck runs and starts great when it is nice weather. When it rains or damp out it will start for one to two seconds then shuts off. Security light stays on when it does this. Light sometimes goes off and it will start. I have replaced fuel pump, ignition key and tumbler, relearned the key and tumbler, ignition coil, ignition module, rotor cap and distributor cap. Cleaned and greased all electrical connectors. If the suns comes out for two or three hours it will start. I have replaced the distributor and rotor three times. Could it be the cam or crank sensor?

Hello,

It sounds like the passlock module is having a problem. I would remove it to check for water damage and to see if there is corrosion at the terminals.

PASSLOCK/Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) Module Right Side Of Instrument Cluster, Behind Air Duct

Here is the wiring diagrams for the system so you can see how ti works. Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens. Cheers, Ken
