2000 Grand Cherokee Dashboard leak

One morning after a rain my passenger floorboard was full of water, but I couldn't find where the water was coming from. I thought it might have been a plugged AC drain, but that didn't seem to make sense. I dried everything out, and last night it rained again so I went to check and found the leak--it's at the far right front edge of the dashboard, about 2 inches from the sidewall. It looks like it's dripping off a metal frame under there, but I have no idea where the leak is originating. It's obviously getting in there from the outside, but I don't know if it would be from the door, the windshield, or the sunroof.

Any suggestions?

Maybe. If you have a fixed antenna on that side of the vehicle, the large rubber gromet on the wire leading into the passenger compartment may have come out, allowing lots of rain water to enter the vehicle. Happened on my 94 and flooded the passenger side.

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport, I too have a similar leakage issue with my windshield. I recently had it replaced, it took the glass company 3 tries and 3 windshields, sizewise to fix it in. But now it still leaks around the passenger side, seems to be leaking and running from under the glove box, and I did my own test and saw water coming from the bottom right hand corner of the door, near the running board along the side. What do you think the issue is? we have replaced the windshield 3 times now!!

My 2000 ford crown Victoria. Have water on the rear passenger side floor. What could be the problem


Hey Grady..
There are few things that could cause the water intrusion... Is the carpet in the front floorboard wet?.. ..Has it rained recently? This will rule out window seals leaking? Have you opened the trunk and checked to see if water is in the trunk? OK..IF it has not rained, no water in the trunk, AND the front floorboards are wet, then the heater core is leaking...

Leaking Fluid


Hi Sarah, I'm glad to help!

Sarah, you can rule out the A/C because the A/C wasn't running when the problem occurred. You can also rule out any fluids from the engine are transmission for they only leak on the ground not inside the vehicle. What you have is a water leak coming in from the rain. Here's a good way to find out where its coming from. Take your home garden hose and run water from the top of the vehicle down the windshield and watch under the dash board to see if you can see where it is coming from. NOTE: You may have to move the hose in different areas until the water comes into the vehicle. Once you find where the leak is then have the glass company repair the leak. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sarah.

Leaking Fluid


Hi Sarah, I'm glad to help!

Lets address your question first. No it can't be any type of fluids from the Transmission or Engine. The reason the fluid is a brownish color is because the water coming in is washing dirt and debris into the vehicle. NOTE: If you did not notice any leak during the hot weather when your were running the A/C I'd say it's not due to the A/C System. If it were the A/C drain hole plugged up then you would here water sloshing around in the A/C housing close to the blower motor. It seems to me sense it was in the rain and we have had some really hard rain lately that's its most likely due to an outside leak. Here's how you can find the leak if its an outside leak. Close all the windows and run water over the passenger side windshield open the drivers door and get inside and see if you see water coming in, if you do that where your leak is. If you don't then move the water hose to another area and check again until you find it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sarah.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Larado has water pouring out from under the dashboard on the passenger side. Help!


The water gushing in on passenger side, is probably antifreeze, check that the heater core isn't leaking. If it is gushing try and capture some of this water and and see if it is antifreeze or just water. If antifreeze then it's the heatercore if water the. It's from the a/c

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leaks fluid under the car. Took it to Sport Durst. Told them about the leak and that it sounds like water flowing through the dashboard. My low coolant light was


Put a large piece of light paper under the cars or truck motor area and let it set overnight. In the morning see what color the fluid is. Put your finger in the fluid that has leaked if any is there and see if it feels like water or oil. Coolant could be orange or green depending on the type you use. Coolant can sometimes be confused with transmission fluid. Check the water hoses that go into the dashboard for leaks. Also check for dampness on the passenger side of the front seat on the carpet area. If it is wet it is your heater coil that has a leak. Hope this hopes.
