Question about Cars & Trucks
There is a drain hose in the base of the ac chamber that drains condensate out under the car. This hose blocks up with gunk from inside the car ( looks like black slimy moss) and the water cannot get away. You will have to disconnect the hose of the chamber and clean both the hose and the fitting back into the chamber.

It's not your heater core. If your heater core is out it would leak antifreeze. My wife's 97 Grand Cherokee had the same problem. It is condensation from your AC coming leaking through a round hole in the AC unit at the firewall. Pull the carpet back and dry out underneath it, there will be a lot of water and we had to leave the carpet pulled back with a fan blowing on it all weekend to dry out. I fixed this about 8 years ago so if I remember correctly, the was a plastic part of the AC at the firewall that had a hole in it that the water was coming out of, I could see leaves and debris in the hole so I know it was part of the drain system. I cleaned out what debris I could and used a cone shaped peice of rubber and twisted it in to plug the hole and tapped over the plug to ensure that it wouldn't back out with vibrations, etc. After you dry everything off start the engine and turn the AC on max, you'll be able to see the where the water is leaking from after the AC gets cold. Hope this helps, it drove us nuts for a year before we figured it out and the wet carpet smell wasn't pleasant.

I recently had this repaired. As it turns out, the evaporation reservoir separated from the firewall. I was fortunate enough to have a good mechanic that completely diassembled my dash to locate the leak. He did not make up some lame diagnosis. I was unfortunate enough to have to pay for the extensive work, but it is worth it. He resealed the heater core compartment to allow the water to drain out properly. I spent many hours searching for an answer in the internet. this is the only solution that I know of.

Testimonial: "Turned out to be a heater blower relay."
Fuses & RelaysThe fuse box is located under the engine hood on the left side, near the upper strut housing or near the battery.
Various relays are also mounted on the fuse box for easy accessibility.
The flashers are located behind the bottom center of the lower instrument trim panel.
