05 electrical problem

I have a 2005 Cooper S and some rain water got into the turn signal switch and then the left rear taillight, right side maker and front right headlight stopped working. I have checked and changed all bulbs and looked at the fuses i believe are the problem to include the ones under the hood and inside the vehicle. Im at a loss and looking for any other thoughts on what it might be. Thanks

Have you dried everything out and checked for moisture/corrosion in/on the turn signal switch contacts/connections?

I did and bought another turn signal switch because the original switch just kept the lights on even when turned off. I've noticed that I have only one light working at a time i.e. light switch off and the left rear brake light works but the right doesnt and turn the lights on and now the right brake light works but not the left and its the same all the way around. Im at a loss because of the fuses look good and the same thing happens for the most part with two turn signal switches. I followed the wiring loom back through the dash and it connects into a larger wire loom continuing to the fuse box so i cant just change out the wire loom head. I also used electrical grease on the new turn signal switch hoping to make a better connection. Let me know if I missed anything or need to look elsewhere. Thanks
