Enigine light coming on

Hey y' all, I'm mew here so excuse me for jumping straight in. Here in the Uk it rains, a lot but there always seems to be water on top of the engine - possible if you ffly through deep puddles but further investigation revealed it to be dripping down through driver's (R here) side washer jet hole, not the washer jet itself.
This is the intake system which really does get soaked when it rains (been screwing up newspaper to check), and the seal around the air filter housing looks a poor design (petrol Cooper). Anyhow, my lights been coming on and I think this may be the cause. I've tried thrashing it, EGR spray you name it.
Going to re-seal it soon as it stops raining. I advise owners to check theirs (lift bonnet when raining and look at underside of washer jets, but remeber not to use them first)
