It sure sounds like wire insulation is worn and water is causing a short. Someplace around the front windshield. Wiring go through a hole someplace where the insulation could rub? That is the first thing I would look for. Of course, I could be entirely wrong.

You might want to check clubsmartcar.com too, as the 450 was pretty rare in the US. I seem to recall mentions of issues with the SAM needing soldering and some common wear points for the harness. I suspect they can get you going fastest.
