Question about Buick Cars & Trucks
Water pooling up is not a related issue. As a matter of fact i would think that you have a seal problem if there is water in the back seat.
The car sounds like it has a short somewhere that discharges the battery back to ground. Possibly caused by the insulation rubbing off of a wire and then touching the frame or by a instrument such as the starter having a short and discharging your battery through its own short to ground. I would take it to a shop if you do not have lots of time on your hands because it may take awhile to find the solution.

SOURCE: water in floorboard
Either the sealant that was used in putting your windshield in has began to fail, or there may be a larger opening under the vents, or on the firewall in the engine compartment. Look under the vent slats/holes under the windshield wipers. Look in the bulkhead that separates the engine from the dashboard(With the hood up). Those are the only ways water is getting in. Seal it with an expanding style sealer

The battery change and the problem, may coindental or maybe not, your air regulator door actuator is probably stripped our just worn out, the regulator is attached to the damper that controls the drivers side air over the two coils. shouldn't be to hard to locate, but will require laying on your back and removing the under dash panel. it will probably be a small rectangular shaped module mount to the duct at a damper door! i hope this helps, if you want exact instructions they can be found at alldatadiy.com for 20 bucks. Merry Christmas!

2004 TB 60,000 miles. i was just told that the leaking fluid in my passenger side floorboard was do to a clogged up A/c hose. An A/C works by drying/ removing the moisture from the air inside the vehicle and cooling it. The accumulated fluid is usually evacuated under the vehicle which is what you see when people are stopped at a red light and there is dripping under their car. when a hose is blocked there is a vent that from some reason flows directly into the passenger side floor board. If you can not manually knock loose the block your probably going to have to take it to a mechanic.

do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?
