Why would a 1993 Dodge Colt not start when it is wet outside?

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”.

Your 1993 Dodge Caravan might start sometimes and not start other times because of a bad starter or solenoid. You might also have a weak battery or a charging system that is not working correctly. This could also be an issue with the distributor.
