Sounds very much like you have a water ingress problem - the water in the passenger footwell is a sign the windscreen scuttle drains are blocked and water may have got into the electronics behind the dash or fuseboxes.
The scuttle panel is the one just below the windscreen with the ventholes for the heater. You'll need to remove it and clear the drainholes in each corner. I would also suspect the pollen filter has been damaged
