Top corners of the boot opening below the rear window have drain holes, left and right. Take a piece of wood and clean out the drain tubes. BE CAREFUL not to damage the rubber drain lines! Remove all the fuses and replace them with new fuses. Fusebox is located on the firewall ahead of the driver's side. Be sure to use the correct amp size. Sizes are noted inside your fusebox cover. New fuses will cure many of your electrical gremlins. Do you have an owner's manual? This will help in solving problems as well.
