norfolk VA heavy rain

it recently rained pretty heavy here and since then my S430's been going haywire. The fuel guage does not move, the rear window screen won't budge, the interior lights flicker every once in awhile, I have an SRS airbag warning light on, and worst of all my rear lights are on all the time, even when the lights are turned to the off position and car is off.

My only relief has been to totally disconnect my battery when I'm not driving so that it doesn't drain sitting in the parking lot. I suspect the rainwater had to have come into contact with a sensor or something important to be causing these problems.

Any advise on what to do here would be greatly appreciated.

Try posting this on the W220 forum, found in the sedans section. Chance are much better of your reaching other S-Class owners there and this has probably happened before and a solution given. Good luck.
