Take the complete fuse box out(everything unplugs)and dry it away from direct heat,the body computer(it is the unit plugged behind the fuse box)may have water in it,
If your are lucky enough,it may just be ok after drying.

Unless your sure there is enough fuel in the car I would try getting some in first.

I only say this because my 147 needle never went all the way down to the pin. Soon after I bought it I drove home whilst it was almost on zero, got home fine, parked up etc no problems, I just thought I'd fill it up on my way to work in the morning. It didn't start in the morning, and after I filled it up it did.

OK, before you put the fuse box and body computer back in, find out where the moisture came from?

Dry it all out with a towel then have a look at the window-screen seal is it flush against the car?
If you can't find it via a visual check, try pouring little bits of water on the window down the drivers side, to see if it's leaking through?
