Could be

however, if on the passenger side it could also be a plugged HVAC case

try not using the a/c for a day or two


if however, you only notice the water after the rain it could be coming from almost anywhere including the windshield or sunroof

water leak diagnoses is usually very labor intensive and include lots of cool tools like door seal "dust" and/or sonic testers @ $10,000

Power windows not working and power lock not working


It is possible that all power for all switches goes thru the driver's door master switch, and the power to this comes thru a bundle of wires coming thru the driver's door hinge area. As this door opens and shuts, those wires flex and eventually may break. Test for power getting to the switch.

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?


Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

Air condition wather in the interior car


Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, it's been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

Greetings - I have a 1992 Ford explorer, the driver side door is jammed shut. It will not open from outside or inside. I am thinking I must rip open the inside door to get to the lock! What do you...


2 options. Find a tow truck company and have them go through the window with a " slim jim" tool to open door, so as not to ruin it, or take apart the interior panel

I have a 1993 Landcruiser, there is water in driver side passenger door and I'm sure how the water is getting in the door and it does not appear to being evaporing, now there is water on the floor board on...


Water does enter the door past the window rubber seals. The seals are only designed to keep the water out of the interior. As the water accumulates inside the door, it is supposed to drain out thru holes provided in the bottom of the door panel, on the inside edge. What you have are clogged drain holes in the door. Open the door, and look for some oval looking holes; use a small, thin screwdriver or a piece of stiff wire to defeat the mud or debris thjat is clogging up the drain holes... This will fix your issue.
A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated!

Power window on 2001 chevy silvrado


Sounds like your gears are striped out inside the motor. I had the same problem on a car of mine. I just went to a parts store and bought the gear and took the motor apart and fixed it myself. It cost 18 dollars with tax.

Good Luck.
