well get the electronics straigh out first..
and about the water comin from the accelerator pedal.. there some possibilities here.
the most obvious is that the fornt windshield was replaced at some point and the perosn that installed the new window messed up on the sealing.. so for that you woul dneed a new seal.. the problem is to identify that it is the seal, since on the bottom part of it you wont be able to much unless you do the following..
remove the bottom plastic covers for the pedals and the passenger side, just to help seeing. then ask some one to get a hose and shoot the water very hard around the window seal..
while he does that, you and a good flishlight will be under the dash waiting for the drops to come.. im very sure that is will be very visible where the drip is comming from..
this also includes the possiblity of not being the seal, but also a broken wire connector for the wiper motor, the conector goes form under the windshiled where the wiper motor is to behing the dasbhboard right behind the speedometer panel.
also, the ac and heater box has its air blower on the outside, underneth the windshiled. there is a foam seal that ensures seal between the heater box and the cars body, but after some time the seal might ass well fail,
also, open the hood, and look on the bottom of the windshiled, there is a little plactic grill there, under that grill there is the ac blower motor, and it where the air goes in to the cabin, and also the wiper motor.
is the previous owner did not clean the leaves out of there periodically, then it will most likely be clogged with leaves and all that stuff, cloggin the drain on the bottom part of it..
and is nottthing helps, then check the rubber gromments that seal the accelerator cable when it goes trought the firewall and the clucht hydraulic supply hose, in case is a manual. o yes do check around the fuse box, because on the bottom part of it, there is a big wire passagfe and if the seals around it fail, then water enters there.
just look carefully under there..
