The receiver is just above the rear view mirror. The water has entered via the radio antenna base, and damaged the Diodes on the PCB..

You can go to your dealer and purchase a new receiver or get a used one from a scrap yard and fit it yourself..

BUT you MUST either replace the antenna base as well to stop it happening again or removed the old one and use some silicon sealent under it to cure the problem..
