I posted this in the Electronic Area too:

Here's a video of the car not starting. Like I said on my other post, it'll crank but not fire. During the winter months when it's cold and wet, if I put a space heater under the front for about 30mintues it'll fire right up. But since it's warm and humid now, it won't fire it if sits for more than 1 day.

first guess is the coil wire is nfg,.
pull it off and check the tower on the coil

get the car running at night,,take a spray bottle of water
( like a windex bottle) and mist over the wires,. if the car stumbles and u see a light show,, new wires is your problem,.

OK... the coil is brand new as of last September.... I'll try the wire. Hell of a lot cheaper than everything else.

I will just throw out something that alot of people overlook for driveability issues. This happened to me a couple years back when I had starting issues on damp days. Got the codes scanned and ended up with 6 codes for emissions, computer voltage and others. I started at a GM dealer, and they were unable to help. I was poking around and unexpectedly found my issue. Take off the air filter box to access the ECM computer underneath. It sits on the front part of the fender liner on the drivers side. Undo the plastic housing for the computer and lift up. Check the wiring coming out of the computer. Mine had worn through on 5 or 6 wires and was shorting out on the metal fender liner. 2 wires were completely worn through and broken. A half an hour of soldering and heat shrink and all codes were gone and driveability was restored! Let me know if this helps!
