Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket supplier for 1500 spark plug wires and ignition control boxes ?

Maybe wires but no Electronic Control Module. (ECM Ignition box, PCM different terminology. Same thing) What is your issue. The Guys can help. :)

You can make your own plug wires if you can find some solid core wire and you don't want anything but an original equipment ECM even if there was such a thing as aftermarket.

ECM is repairable to a degree - the output transistors in the ECM are replaceable if your Fuel Pump output or one of your coil driver outputs are bad.....

It's a 1995 and I have owned it for 8 years. I've always been able to take it to a car wash and just ride away when I'm done washing it. Over the last couple of years it has gotten increasingly harder to start after a wash to the point where last season I only hand washed it at home for fear of being stranded for a while at a car wash. By the way I always cover the air intakes before washing.

Try spraying the wires and boots with a electrical water repellent product first. Also, I am not sure about the 1500's, but the 4 cylinder wings had a drain hole by the spark plugs that would plug up with dirt, etc and cause hard starts. I also put a small dab of dilectric grease on the plug boots and that seems to help as far as starting/riding in the rain goes.
