Question Answered: water leak in rain

Water can enter the cabin from may places, start by checking the door seals, window seals, sunroof seals and drains. Check that the doors, windows and sunroof lid are all adjusted properly so that they close correctly. Other possibilities are the windshield, front cowl drains and any plugs in the body.
So you can see there are many possibilities, and finding a leak can be very difficult, so start with the obvious stuff, and when it is dry, try to locate the leak with a garden hose.

Be careful with this diagnostic approach, a fault code is just a piece of information used to help you diagnose the problem, and replacing a part without a proper diagnosis is asking for trouble. If you post the code, we can provide some info that may help avoid replacing unneeded parts.
If you do replace the part, I suggest using only OE parts. O2 sensors are tuned specifically for each engine, so using any aftermarket sensors may cause the check engine light to come on again.

I imagine dandd didn't perform a check of your financial situation first before recommending spending $25 on picking up a technical repair manual for your vehicle, which is very helpful advice to anyone performing repairs on their own vehicle.
Someone takes their own time to give you advice, and that is the response you give? You are soooooo ungrateful!

Check all your bulbs, one of them may be burned out. If you do replace one, make sure to use the exact same bulb type.
