Will getting water on the driver side door mess with the electronics?

It was a torrential downpour and I had to open the door for a brief second. When I checked back again, the door was soaked, all the power mirror/window switches. Will this cause problems?

Absolutely, you might have to replace the door now unfortunately.

I've had my door pretty wet before and it didn't cause any long term damage. Dry it off as well as you can and try not to use any of the switchgear until it fully dries out.
