It sounds like a severe heater core leak,that why I ask if your coolant level is always low?

You have rubber plugs under the cars body that could allow water to enter but if you have standing water that cant be it.

Does it only happen when it rains ?

I have moisture inside my headlight on my 2007 gmc denali. will i have to replace the entire assembly. The lamp is out, could that cause the moisture. Or does the moisture cause the lamp to burn out.

{: ) Some exterior lamps, such as cornering, turn signal, backup, headlamps or tail lamps may exhibit very small droplets of water, a fine mist or white fog (condensation) on the inside of the lamp lens. This may be more noticeable on lamps with "multi-lens" designs and may be normal during certain weather conditions. Condensation occurs when the air inside the lamp assembly, through atmospheric changes, reaches the "dew point". When this takes place, the moisture in the air within the lamp assembly condenses, creating a fine mist or white fog on the inside surface of the lamp lens.
Most exterior lamps on General Motors vehicles use a vented design and feature a replaceable bulb assembly. They are designed to remove any accumulated moisture vapor by expelling it through a vent system. The vent system operates at all times, however, it is most effective when the lamps are ON or when the vehicle is in motion. Depending on the size, shape and location of the lamp on the vehicle, and the atmospheric conditions occurring, the amount of time required to clear the lamp may vary from 2 to 6 hours.
Completely sealed headlamp assemblies (sealed beams) are still used on a limited number of models being manufactured today. These lamps require the replacement of the complete lamp assembly if a bulb filament burns out.

If moisture or droplets appear after being exposed to rain or washing, you can try putting some weather seals on the edges where you think the seal is poor. Check also the headlamp caps. In any case, if the moisture doesn't clear no matter what drying approaches, better replace the assembly.
The bulbs won't cause the moisture, but it is possible that an accumulated moisture on the bulb itself can disable it, although rare.

A puddle appears on the front passenger side floor when it rains and car has been parked not used. Nothing else appears wet except the floor.

GM cars used to be notorious for leaking rain water in around the edge of the front windshield. There is also a rainwater drainage system on the front, generally where the wipers are located and the drain hole on the bottom of that can become clogged.

When raining a have water dripping into the passenger seat well

This problem is rare. Try to check if the water really is coming from the outside because its possible that the water is coming from the air conditioning unit's condenser.

To isolate the problem, have someone seat in the passenger seat. Wash your car. Ask the person inside the car if he/she sees or feels any water droplets. If the passenger doesn't see or feel any drops. Its possible that water is coming from the condenser unit of your A/C. You need to have your condenser cleaned if this happens.

This happened to me as well, i thought that my car had some sort of leak from the outside. Turns out that it was only the condenser. I had it cleaned and viola. No more water drops
