I have a Fiat punto car 2006, manual transmission. I drove the car during rain, parked it and after a few hours of heavy rain tried to start the car again with no luck. I hear a ventilating sound, probably from the starter. The battery is new and is fully charged. The sound the car makes is similar to a sound of a disconnected ventilator that is spinning without anything connected to it. 5 seconds after I stop trying to start the car, I hear short circuit electric sounds from the engine. Can it be connected to the rain? Can I fix this issue without going to the garage?
Update: I managed to start the engine by a push. after half an hour ride the starter behaves the same.
