Get the seal on your windshield checked. Water could also be coming into the system which brings fresh air from outside into the heating/cooling system.

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

SOURCE: water is leaking into the drivers side floor when it rains

let's try something here and see if works,
get a garden water hose and put the most pressure near where you see leaking water and have someone inside the car look for it.

SOURCE: Water coming in to front passenger floor when it rains

The heater/airconditioner box under the dash has a drain hose to allow condensation to drain when the air conditioner is running. If this hose gets plugged, rain may accumulate in this box also (if it's raining heavily), as it comes in through the fresh air intake.

Look on the engine side of the firewall, probably on the passenger side, for a hose coming through the firewall that is not connected to anything. It is usually short, has a 90 degree bend, and the open end is down. Make sure that the end of this hose is not plugged.

SOURCE: when it rains, my 2004 dodge durango hesitates and

I had the same problem. Same year, too. 2004 4.7L Durango. Took it to a Dodge Dealer in Oak Lawn, IL. Problem was when it rained out water got into the engine from the hood by the windshield wipers. The spark plugs got all wet causing the engine to hesitate and shake. I had to have a water dam installed and never had anymore problems. Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: 2004 Jeep rain sensing wipers continue to run

a couple of thoughts:
Has your windshield just been replaced?
The sensor is up by the rear view mirror, is it plugged in all the way?
Do you have the right size wiper blades on your vehicle? (too short of a blade misses the rain sensor and does not wipe it clean)
How good are your blades? ( as above, to turn off the rain sensor the blade needs to wipe it clean)
The rain sensor works by projecting multiple inferred beams to the inside of the windshield, like a prism, they reflect back to collectors. when there is a water droplet on the outside of the windshield it changes a beams trajectory and it misses the collector thust turning on the wipers.
(yes, this all happens in that little sensor up by the rear view mirror.)
check to make sure the wiper switch is in the right position.
also....I've seen rain sensors not work properly when the hood or doors are open.
hope this helps

Water is running under my dash onto floorboard in my 2007 dodge caliber after it rains. Where is the water comming from


You need to find the conduits for rain - one of them has a leak in it probably from corrosion. Try to locate just where the water is getting in and see if you can use a sealer to stop the water from getting in.

I would remove the glove box and anything else in the way and look for the source when hosing down the car.

Water leak fro dash bored


On the early 2000 model Grand Prix the issue with the water leaking into the passenger floor board is usually the seal that has come off near the blower motor, this seal is easily able to be replaced and is inexpensive right from GM. You can remove you wiper blades and the plastic coweling in front of the widshield then look down inside where the intake is for this blower motor and you should see the seal just laying there or maybe hanging off. The purpose of this seal is to divert rain water that runs down the windshield and into this intake area. Replace this seal and it should take care of the issue.

If this isn't the issue some of these cars had an issue with the windshield not having enough adheasive installed on the lower portion of the windshield and allowing rain water to be driven in between the window and the dash, the water then runs down the firewall behind the dash and corrodes wiring. A friend of mine had this issue on his pontiac and had to had the entire ECM wiring replaced and the window resealed.

I own a 1994 Magna Wagon & water is leaking onto the floor of the driver's side every time it rains. It runs down on the outside of the dash. Can't work out where water is getting in.


Do you run the defrost or heater while its raining. It could be your heater core. It will push moisture and water into your floorboard. It is located against the firewall of most cars. You can bypass the heater core until you replace it by connecting the hoses that lead in and out of it together. Be sure to use O ring clamps to tighten down each hose to the connector. Connector can be purchased at any autoparts store for a few bucks. This is only a temporary fix and you wont have heat until the heater core is replaced.

2004 endeavor problem


Souns like a leak is allowing water into the cabin area, there may have been a leak in the firewall but it looks like it's coming in from somewhere else. Take a look at the rubber door seal in the drivers side door jam and check it for damage or possibile leak area's, if you find a leak here it can be sealed with silicone or you can replace the entire dorr seal. The only other possibility for the leak would be the seal around the windshield, also check this and seal with silicone if a leak is deteteced.

Hope this helps
