    Either the windshield is not sealed properly, or there is a leak in the air intake for the heater.

Floorboard is wet because the drain from the A/C Evaporator is plugged up with "gunk" Need to find the drain and clean it out.
For a 2008 the Battery has used up it's 60 month life and you need a new one

SOURCE: 2008 GMC Acadia has water leaking into floorboards

{: ) The drain hose is just near to the right of the gas pedal, but is being covered by the center floor console. You need to remove only the side trim panel, which is supported by 3 clips from inside.
To give you an idea how to remove that side panel, first move the driver seat maximum rearward. Remove all the extra floor mattings on that area. About 1 foot away from the pedal. grasp the lower edge of the trim panel and pull. You may hear or feel the first clip snap out. These clips are normally seated about 3/4 inch depth.
Next, move another foot away and position your hands again to snap out the second clip. The third clip is alittle above it. At this point, you may be seeing some clearance at the upper edges of the panel. Work your way from there. You can apply some flexing maneuvers.
When you're successful, you can then proceed with pulling and cleaning of the drain hose. Check also if the drain pipe from the HVAC housing is clogged.
A clogged a/c drain system will not only wet your floor, but it can also damage your blower motor, leaving it stucked or noisy.

SOURCE: 1999 gmc suburban has water loss

Anti-freeze inside the passenger compartment generally will leave a film on the windshield, and have a bit of a greasy feel. Ideally, if you take a white paper towel or napkin & soak up the liquid, the color would quickly identify it as anti-freeze. even though it's a trace amount.

I would expect if you aren't smelling any anti-freeze that you probably are dealing with something else. Water or brake fluid. are about the only 2 other options. Water from a plugged up drain on the heater & A/C box or a potential seal around the windshield which you would have to track down with a water hose & a helper. I would suggest a pressure test on the cooling system to prevent engine damage. If you're using coolant, you're potentially going to overheat sooner or later. That would identify the heater core or wherever the leak may be going. good luck

Where is the overflow tube for the condensation. Water leaking on my floorboard on my 1995 Dodge Ram Van 2500 series?


If you have water in your floorboard, it sounds more to me like your heater core is leaking. Are you sure it's AC condensation? Is the floorboard constantly wet or only when the AC is on? Check your coolant level and see if it's low. Check to see if it's more like antifreeze in the floorboard than just plain water.

Rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain


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?
