Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the components that the fault codes are setting for have been replaced and the codes still set then you most likely have a wiring or connection issue, but it could be an internal issue in the engine controller. If the problem happens when it gets wet then there is a good chance water is entering a connection or causing voltage to bleed between circuits within a damaged section of wiring harness.

What P codes are setting?
