    Hi Nilesh, sorry to see you didn't get any help with this problem. Were you able to find out why your Acura doesn't start when it is raining?

    One of my old cars did this in the rain and it was because there was a area where the water entered under my hood where the electrical box was, so my car wouldn't start until the area was somewhat dry. One day the car just completely stopped working and I salvaged it because the repair cost more than the actual car because it involved getting a new computer and electrical wiring. Hope this helps.
