Gremlins in the electronics?

Guys, I've been noticing some unusual activity with my OBC.

1. Ever since last service I've had the P203A code. I see this on my Garmin Code Reader and only ocassionally get an SES light. This indicates an error with the DEF system but is not low level.
2. Lately I've had one of my two fog lights indicate as being out, and indeed the light is out, but then for some reason it is coming back on again.
3. Yesterday I was low on fuel, got my low fuel alarm and immediately afterward got an ABS and Brake light alarm, plus the Triangle with the little circular arrow. I filled my tank up and the ABS warning went away.

And they reset, go away for a bit, then come back again.

It has been rather wet and I may have passed through some puddles on the highway but nothing deep enough to get up into any of the compartments, etc...

A bit annoying, so will definitely need to schedule a drop off at the dealer if this continues.
