What your seeing is the condensation from the AC dripping in to the passenger compartment. In the condenser area of the AC unit is a small drain line, with time this can and will plug with debris, (bugs, dust, leaves ect) properly place the car on jackstands and locate the drain line, use a small fine wire (or long pipe cleaner) and run thru drain tube clearing the blockage. You mayhave to repeat several times as new debris gets in to the line.
PLease let me know if this had asisted.
Best regards,

How do i locate the condensate drain in my mits galant 2000

For a 2000, it's more likely is that there's rust in the floor under the carpet. There are several drain plugs (approx. 30mm, actually filling manufacturing alignment holes) that often rust out. Fixing it requires that the seat be removed, the carpets lifted up and the rust cleaned / treated. New drain plugs can be made with some 20g steel sheet. They are usually pressed in, but can be glued with automotive gunk adhesive and sealed underside with stone guard spray. If there is real rust in the floor panel, cut out and reweld is required.

Pull the seat back out and check your wires. Some may be ran under your carpet. Sounds like you slpiced a wire and its grounding on the floor pan under the seat.

Wet carpet under front Passenger seat

You have drain blockage in the condesor case itself. There is a small tube that will drain the condensor case, the big black plastic case that contains most of your a/c system inside the car. This case collects moisture and that must drain normally from the case drain to the outside of your car onto the ground.. If this drain is plugged, you will have leakage on to the floor. If the moisture is allowed to remain in the carpet, mildew will set in and then you will have to replace the carpet.

Forget about looking where the drip hose exits under the car, it's inaccessible. It drove me crazy for awhile looking for it. Rather, on the inside, pull down the carpet beside and behind the accelerator pedal and that will reveal a hard plastic elbow that connects the bottom of the ac unit and the firewall where it connects to the drain tube. Take a 1/4" brad point bit and drill a hole into the elbow. Stick a blow gun in it and voila instant relief. Have a towel ready to catch the stinky water as it comes out. Most of it though should pee onto the ground as it should. Find a small lab cork or small rubber stopper and stick it the hole you drilled to finish the job. You can remove it to do the job again when next you have a soaked floor on the passenger side and hear that whooshing noise behind the glovebox on a left turn!
