cant remember which fuse

look inside your fuel bowl, remove the filter and check and see if your fuel heater element has fallen to the bottom of the bowl, that is, touching. (it always is in the bottom), but i don't remember which fuse, but this sounds like the problem i had.

if it is this, it shorts it out, around $60 at ford i believe for the part, which once you see it, it's laughable

PS: THE WARM OUTSIDE THING, I'M NOT SURE. JUST REMEMBER MINE DID THIS LIKE 3 YEARS AGO, AND IT WAS THE FUEL HEATER ELEMENT INSIDE THE BOWL. EASY TO REPLACE AND FIX.

You don't have to "fix" it, just unplug it and drive (worry about the repair at some later date....)

There's actually quite a few posts here about "sputtering" in the rain. I think it's been determined that it actually has to do with the wipers being on (you could try driving for a bit with them off and see if it stops). This is thought to have something to do with interference of the CPS and changing it might help.....

Do a Search and read-up on some of them
