Default 98 jimmy wont start when wet

Realize this is an old issue. But solved my problem last night, just want to share.
The female connection on the ignition module wiring harness seems to cause most problems, either from arcing or in my case one of the four pins not connecting properly. Socket had been pushed down into holder. A two minute fix, started first click, after days of cranking with no fire.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for posting this update- lots of no start issues with the S10s/ Jimmy/ Blazers/ Sonomas. Nice to keep current on the fixes.
