I know the answer to this one...open the bonnet and check the battery ,you will find water half way up the battery-this is due to a blocked water leak off under the battery tray which then allows water to leak into the car through the pollen filter housing.to cure this fault remove battery and clean out drain,let the water run away.Next check the rear carpets for dampness-if these are then lift the passanger front carpet and dry as much water out as poss....hopefully you have caught it in time as the water can leak into the control unit under the glovebox--expensive-- If i am wrong with this guess then check 2 other places-bonnet catch for operation of switch may be faulty and last boot lock may be wet due to rear washer jet hose leaking(only on estates)
