If your running a chip, there were some issues with a few of the early edge products while running in the rain.

Stalling in the rain (generally wipers on) is a common Edge Juice ailment.

If that is the case, I'd unplug and clean connections at ECM and two engine harness junctions - first with electronic spray cleaner, then treat with a light film of dielectric grease, before reconnecting.

I wrapped my connectors on top of engine with clear cling wrap and then covered them with aluminum foil and it didn't act up in the rain anymore. Looks bad, but worked good. I suppose if you take up the space with the dielectric grease that will keep the moisture out.
