Hi there. The wiring could have a ground that is loose or shorting out when driving in the rain. Check all of the ground wires to the vehicle and look for any loose wires or wires that could be contacting each other by water on a bare terminal. If you need further assistance with dashboard lights not working, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
