OK, I have an 99 accord LX and this had only happened to me 3 times in the last 4-6 months. Morning after a good rain, the car will not start. I am going to assume that something has gotten wet or has gotten some moisture somewhere, The ECU knows this and will not let the car start.
What is Wet??
Thanks in advance,

Sounds like a plug wire problem, even though Honda plug wires usually last 10 years or so.
You can open the hood on one of those misty rainy nights and watch for stray sparks, also the boot that goes down to the spark plug could be leaking volts.
You can check them for 'burnt' spots.

Well, bask in the winter I had a plug or a wire fail on me. Definatley could tell by the way it ran and followed up conclussion with a code check. I went a head and replaced all the wires and plugs. I guess I can recheck the connections. Where will the burnt spots be, on the wire or the spark plug itself? If one wire is leaking voltage, this will tell the ECU not to start the car?
Start the engine and pour some water over the distributor cap. If it stalls it needs a new cap.
That sounds almost like the advice my old man gave me when I was young and naive.I was having problems with missing on one cylinder and he told me to pull the plug wires one at a time while it was running until I found the one that didn't make it any worse. Of course the first one I pulled off lit me up like a christmas tree. I could hear him laughing all the way from inside the house. Anyway, sounds like a cracked distributor cap letting you get some condensation forming inside.
