Leak & Electrics

Hi folks, need a little advice.

My 147 decided to spring a leak at drivers door, after spending an hour on here reading old threads I reckoned it was a door issue.
So, started investigation, wet carpets, very wet underlay
Stripped door and as suspected water has been coming through a tear in the sheet that supposed to be the moisture barrier, and also possibly a small leak at mirror. So stripped & cleaned & fitted a new sheet of heavy polythene, with sealant etc & resealed mirror. I've decided to leave door panel off to dry & also let the sealant all set properly.
This leads to my main question, I now have the flashing speedo, having read a bit on here it seems it indicates an electrical fault.
So. would NOT having door switches & puddle light connected be enough to set this off? If so then, whats the chances of it being ok when i replace everything tomorrow?
Please don't tell me i'll need a dealer reset.......
