many thanks, this gives me an avenue to investigate --i'll gather info where i can and check all round the engine bay
First place you need to check is the scuttle. Remove the wiper arms and the plastic trim
and underneath once you've cleaned out all of the leaves, old bird's nests etc. you may
see where water can get in.
It may also be a good idea to make a splash guard that will fit over the BSI assembly,
I would use a piece of thin flexible plastic sheet or heavy polythene.

many thanks --had the fuse box open to the air and the heater on--went for a run to get some gentle heat around the bsi --problem being i don't want to strip out the fuse box till i have another to replace it as i have to drive 20 odd miles to work and home again in the early hours --if i can't use the car i don't have a job-so i'll have to struggle along till i get some hols in march
ps. thanksfor not saying 'did you check the fuses' as an old spark i always check the obvious first
I normally advise checking the fuses 1st as many folk don't start at the beginning & end up in the diagnostic poo. Us pro's are not always perfect,I've made silly mistakes in the past,non serious thankfully.So I assume the member is not skilled & start simple.
