Expert:  Jake replied 2 years ago.
Hey there, well the fact that it seems worse in wet conditions is concerning since that is what causes the problem I originally told you to fix. If what're gets in the case.
You might need to check the sensor harnesses and see any are missing the rubber gasket or are corroded.
