Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If it started then shut off with starting fluid being used this can usually indicate this is a lack of fuel.It may or may not be rain related.This may be an issue with the fuel pump itself failing in the fuel tank as I have seen and had to replace before or an issue with the wiring or connections leading to the pump at the fuel tank.If there is a loose connection or poor connection seal on the connector or a knicked or damaged wire the moisture in the air from the rain can cause poor connections causing this fault here when it rains.

Other then this and the most common cause is the fuel pump itself needing replaced.You will have to have the power and ground signals tested leading to and at the fuel pump and if these are all o.k. then the fuel pump itself needs replaced.
