Default 1995 Del Sol Solid CEL/ fuel pump wonít turn on when wet out or humid

Warning: Not a professional, but not stupid, maybe.

So, Iíve been trying to track down the source of my fuel pump not working. I read in other threads it could have been the distributor, spark plugs or lines. I replaced all of them. I thought the fuse box was getting wet or a bad connection but went through it all and all tested fine. I then cracked open the ECU and one of the capacitors had leaked. I bought a new one and it now starts just fine. Got mine refurbished for about $150. Iím pretty sure itís the atmospheric pressure that made it stop working. If I went up in elevation or the weather was bad (rainy/cloudy weather) the pressure would be low and make it not work. Would also cut out while driving.

Let me know if Iím on to something or just going crazy. Thanks.

So, you bought a new ECU and the car works properly. You then got your original ECU repaired and it works "sometimes" ???

Sorry, should have edited that last one. I bought a refurbished one online for about $150 because my old one only worked sometimes. The one I bought works properly.
