If your roof leaks and the water goes into your overhead light will it dry out to be able to use the light or do you have to have the wiring replaced?

Recommend fixing the roof before you do anything else. If you use the light while it is wet, fire or worse could occur. The wiring should be okay if you make certain that no moisture remains and that the problem will not recur.
