It's going to be from 1 of 3 places. The windshield (you'll have to pull the trim to see), the door seal( look for swollen or loose spots), Or the sun roof if you have one.

    No if you can find the seal leak, use silicone.

My 2006 H3 has water leaking into drivers side floor


While H3 is parked on driveway, driver floor mat is removed, and steering turned all the way right to expose splash area, pressure hose the front left steering splash area behind left tire while another person feels with their hands to determine where water is entering. If the leak is beneath, it would only enter when you go through flooded area. When it rains, the water constantly splashes behind the tires, which is an area source for water to enter the driver area while the vehicle is in motion during rain condition. If you live in snow area, they use salt to keep roads clear of snow. Salty water is highly corrosive to exposed steel. In the summer or fall season before snow begins, you steam jet pressure clean the underside, then inspect for any area where undercoating had come off. Take primer spray paint and cover these exposed areas with at least 3 coats of primer paint, or rubber sealant spray.

Water leak driver floor board


A water leak under the dash could be the heater leaking near the glove box, or a windshield leak, or sometimes the drain tube for that area has gotten plugged up and needs to be cleared out. Most times a little blast of air pressure will do it.
Hope this helps.

You have to find the leak
Have a shop use their Evap Smoke Machine
Pressurize the cabin & see if smoke comes out
around the windshield,engine compartment,etc
Hate to run hose over the car, but you can see it come
in,so that is an option,with someone under the dash with
a light watching.
Check on internet for the issue on your vehicle
Call an auto glass place, for advice on what they solve

Rain water under dash


Hello, You may have a potential claim under your Car Insurance for Comprehensive which may have no deductible.

There is every potential for water damage to the components under the dash besides the rust of the metal dash framework.

Your windshield seal may be leaking and a simple removal and replacement of the seal by a Glass shop may fix your car. But there may be other wiring "boots" going through the firewall and those chassis seals may also leak.

You have a problem which does not necessarily have a bolt-on solution except possibly a worn door hinge pin allowing for a leak to run along the top of your door weatherstripping and into the dash on the drivers door jam.

There are a number of paste or tube type gasket sealants. But you would want something like the glass shops use. The fumes from some of the products are meant to be used under the hood and not inside the cabin where the people are.

Check with your insurance company, often Comprehensive does not raise your rates if you need to use it. Otherwise if you want to fix it yourself, look for water tracking. You could also position yourself under the dash and have a helper spray a garden hose on the car while you look for the water to enter.

When lowering sterring column my headlights cut off


the head light switch is in the multifunction switch under the steering wheel. its wiring harness comes out from under the cosmetic cover of the steering column and attaches to the car's wiring. You need to get your head up under the dash and see where the connector plug/socket is being pulled apart by the downward motion of the column. or just leave it forever in the full up position. i would do a search on youtube for "dodge ram dashboard" and hopefully you can watch someone else doing it to see how the lower dash comes out on the driver side.

Leaking water from the driver's side, carpet wet winter and summer


if its still leaking when its not raining check the fluid, if it smells slightly or is coloured it could be radiator coolant, your heater in the car uses the cooling system from your radiator the hoses come into the dash into the heater box, it could simply be the heater box has sprung a leak and is leaking into your car. you would need to take dash apart to get to it. might pay to check levels in radiator aswell, if its happening when its raining only or when water is coming from outside it could be the aircon vents at the bottom of the windshield check to see if there are leaves clogging it up remove and poor water in to check if its done. clogged vents cause overflowing into your system.

Blinkers dont work. the turning singles wont blink


Hello, what you should do is if the blinkers just stay on constant when you turn them on means that the turn signal flasher is bad, it is located under the dash on the drivers side below the steering wheel. it will be a little silver cylinder with two wires coming off of it. General Motors usually puts them up against a bar under the dash.

My 2002 VW Jetta leaks on the passenger side every time it rains. The water leak is worse when the car is parked and not being driven. I suspect it has something to do with the weather stripping.


i was a water leak specialist for vw and mainly the leaks are from around the rubber at the windshield as well as follow down through the antenna the 2 fuses under the drivers dash are 45.00 each 20 years ago im sure three more than that now ...use a garden hose and start low and after a few minutes raise it little by little until leak is found as well as a 2nd person in the vehicle with a light to look for the leak you may caulk or of that nature using tape to ensure a nice straight line on the windshield and not make a mess sometimes it even comes from the fenders and so look carefully and raise the hose upwards going slowly allowing the water to penetrate the area in which it finds its way in
