you could have a cracked distributor cap Check condition of ignition system including distributor cap, rotor and ignition cables. (You didn’t mention engine size because Colt did have a 1.6L “distributorless” engine….it had an ignition block which could crack causing voltage leakage, especially when moisture is about. It is a block where all the ignition cables meet.) If cap, rotor or cables look suspect, change them. With the cables, buy a tube of dielectric grease and use at both ends of the cables to connect to the cap and the spark plugs. Even if the cables look relatively new and you are reluctant to change them, minimally, buy the grease and grease the ends. It helps keep the moisture out and the voltage “in”.
