Ok it seems to be only a problem when it is raining outside but today my car got a voltage spike and died and refuses to restart and check engine light is not on to read codes...

last time it did this I believed the battery shorted out on the hood as after letting the car sit for just a day the car fired right up and was back to being normal and nothing wrong with it and i remedied this problem so it could not short out on hood

obviously imo it appears that water is getting in somewhere causing the car to get a voltage spike and just die

I have no idea where to check things out now though

My Reliant wagon used to do that and it was water getting into the distributor. It would start again after it dried out, usually not too long. Have a shield over mine now. Maybe it?

true ^

if it's an early model with the logic module in the kick panel it may have water on the conectors from a cowel leak

if so , a plastic bag pulled up over the LM and taped to the wireing above will prevent the prob in future

though when mine got wet it wanted to drive it's self at about 50 mph
