Turn signal


You should check for a couple of problems:

1) Verify that the front and rear passenger turn signal light bulbs aren't burned out.

2) Check for a short circuit in the wires at the signal lights. This can happen if you have a leak around the light and moisture gets inside. A strong indicator that this is the problem is if the signal acts up right after a rain, but works fine after several days of dry weather.

1994 Volvo 940, 4-cylinder non-turbo. Car starts fine when weather is dry. However, we have had recent cold/snow/rain and it is very damp. Car has full gas tank and good battery and will continue to crank...


I suggest that you look for secondary voltage leaks from the ignition system. Moisture causes dirt to become a pathway for this spark voltage. Look inside all wire connections, for any corrosion. A scope can test this, but typically a home does not have a scope...

The moonroof leaks when it rains and only if its parked at an angle with the drivers side below the passenger. That could it be??


There should be a drainage hole in the moon roof gutter, make sure that it's is not plugged up with dirt, and depends on how old your car is there may be some corrosion that the water is seeping through. Good luck and hope this helps, oh and check the condition of the weather strip around the moon roof. The weather strip should be soft and not dry rotted, if it is dry rotted, a little vaseline will bring it back to life.

07 Equinox Leaking water at the front corners of the sun roof. usually during heavy rain, but also when going thru the car wash and the blowers come on to dry the water off.


check the adjustment of your sunroof, i work at a dealer and i just had a 2006 equinox in with the same exact problem, if you look at where the glass attaches to the sunroof rails you will see 2 torx screws on each side, with the sunroof closed, loosen the screws a little bit, don't remove them, push the glass up untill its level with the roof and the seal around the glass looks even all the way around where it contacts the roof sheet metal, then tighten down the screws while holding the glass in place. if it continues to leak, remove the sun visors and the clips for the sun visors, i believe they are either philips scres or torx, there will be 2 screws on the visor itself, and 1 for the clip. then remove the front pillar trim panel, you will see a small cover in the upper panel, use a pick or a sharp thin tool to pry the cover off and remove the 7mm screw in there, pull the door weatherstrip off and pull the trim panel off, after you do that gently pull the headliner down in the front corner and peek up at the sunroof frame, make sure the drain ose is still connected, the procedure is the same for both left and right sides. this should definitely clear up your problem!

Trunk leak


Check for defective spot welds around the plastic inserts on the left and right sides of the trunk. If the spot welds burnt through the metal, there will be holes were water can get in. Use some JB Marine Weld to seal up any holes or cracks in the sheet metal. Also, check the rubber drain holes under those inserts, that are in the sheet metal of the car, to make sure they are not blocked with road dirt. Also, check the weather stripping on the outside of the car, adjacent to the trunk. If the rubber and chrome trim weather stripping is pulling out (on the exterior of the rear quarter panel), then water will leak through the little plastic attaching screws and into the trunk beneath the plastic containers on the left and right front sides of the trunk.

Starting in damp weather 1993 240 wagon, auto/od, 235k miles


perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.

Interior Carpet Getting Wet


It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.
