Starting in cool and humid weather

#1 Post by CherryBombZ28 » Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:02 am

Went to go move the Racecar the other day. Had it parked outside for a couple weeks and we've had a bunch of rain the last little while so it's been pretty humid. It has a car cover over it but when I went to try to start it, it didn't wanna crank over. Do I just need to give the battery a boost or is the cool and humid weather not letting it start properly?

That sounds like an electrical issue. If the battery is good, the car should crank over in any weather. An engine with no choke will be a little difficult to fire and stay running when cold out, but it should still crank on the starter without issue.
