Sorry for the delay. Is the engine cranking but not starting or not even cranking? If not cranking does the vehicle power up normally when you turn the ignition ON and will the shifter release from park with the ignition ON and foot on the brake?

Dammit, it just started. What is the cause?.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you tell me what causes this everytime it rains? It cranks fine but won't turn over.

I have seen instances where there is water ingress in the trunk. Look in the spare tire well to see if there are signs of water. Water may be entering the rear fuse box causing the problem. Let m know.
