From the sounds of it, one or more harness connectors may be getting moisture inside causing a short condition; then after everything dries up, the connection is good again. My bet it's either the camshaft position sensor or the crankshaft position sensor or both harness connectors. Also check the ECU harness connectors.
Waterproof Connector Inspection
If water enters the connector, it can short interior circuits. This may lead to intermittent problems.
Check the following items to maintain the original waterproof characteristics.
RUBBER SEAL INSPECTION
• Most waterproof connectors are provided with a rubber seal
between the male and female connectors. If the seal is missing,
the waterproof performance may not meet specifications.
• The rubber seal may come off when connectors are disconnected.
Whenever connectors are reconnected, make sure the rubber seal
is properly installed on either side of male or female connector.
WIRE SEAL INSPECTION
• The wire seal must be installed on the wire insertion area of a
waterproof connector. Be sure that the seal is installed properly.
TERMINAL LOCK INSPECTION
* Check for unlocked terminals by pulling wire at the end of connector.
An unlocked terminal may create intermittent signals in the circuit.
