I'm new here on the board. Sorry to hear about your troubles this morning. About ten years ago I used to drive a VW from the late eighties, I used to struggle a lot with startups from cold in damp weather, a few times even having to be rescued by my then husband (who enjoyed my struggle BTW).
I found that spraying all cables and electrical looking parts with something called WD40 helped a bit. Unfortunately it didn't really completely solve the problem and I had to redo it every so often, I contended with this until I got rid of the car altogether. I used to dread having to walk out to my car to go home from the office after it had been raining all day. It was both frustrating and embarrassing.
Not even the extreme cold Canadian winters where as much of a problem as moisture.
I hope this helps.
Oh, and I checked out your other posts and congratulations on your incredible sense of style. I'm a skirt and shoe lover as well.
well my car hates rainy days. He is very hard to start specially at morning. Car is old mazda 323 with manual choke:) but i am proud that I have learned myself special tricks to start him. Anyway when it is damp weather he just sometimes dont want to go. Lots of long crankings needed sometimes and some pumping gaspedal also.
