My Ford F-150 will not start

Asked by Jul 15, 2016 at 11:10 AM about the 1999 Ford F-150 Lariat Extended Cab Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Ford F-150 1999 model extended cab pick-up that is having
problems starting in the rain. I have replaced alternator, and battery all in
the past year or less than and still having the same problem. I believe that
my problem would be the toggle switch that i had to install because even
after replacing the egnition switch and replacing starter it is the only way i
can figure out to start the truck. I have spent at least a thousand dollars so
far these past 2 years and still having issues when it rains. I am low
incomed and can not afford to take it to the shop and was wondering what
else could be wrong that i am missing.

If it only does it when it rains, check the connectors by the firewall on passenger side, they go to the computer and water or moisture might be getting in them. If it is wet, check the hood water seal by the windshield it may be bad or missing
