Hey folks, bit of an odd issue here.

Ive got a 2005 Saab 9-2x, (2005 Subaru Impreza WRX 2.5L under the branding)

After the winter thaw hit we had some very wet days and an ice storm. During that time, my ABS light came on, my door open light began to flicker, and the seatbelt light would come on dimly.

When things dried out a couple days later, things went back to normal and I simply assumed something had gotten wet.

We had more rain and these issues returned, I also found a rather large (Several inch deep) puddle in the rear footwell of the passengers side.

I soaked up the excess with a towel, but the door open light remains on, as well as the dome light, which I shut off at its main switch to avoid draining the battery. I attempted last night to try and dry things out more with a small space heater for a few hours, but as I went to bed, the door open light was still on.

There's also an odd quirk, that when I use my left turn signal, the dome light (When in it's "Door" mode and not simply off or on.) and door open light will flash in opposite time to the turn signal, the ABS light also comes on as soon as I use my left turn signal, and won't go away until I restart the engine, only for it to come back again as soon as I attempt to signal a left turn.

I'm fairly certain there's still water somewhere needing to be dried, but if it's not in or around that footwell, I'm wondering where are good places to look.

I'm also going to be cleaning the window seal rubbers and spraying them with silicone to try and stop the water getting into the cabin. Do you or anyone else have some more suggestions that could be helpful?

14 years old, odds are seals need replacing. I use a bucket of water and food dye to see where the leak dye shows up
