It has to be the trunk seal leaking. It probably had some damage from the accident and its finially gotten where its causing this to leak. Look at it real close and see if you see any unusual wear patterns where it seals and that may give you a clue as to where its leaking and what you need to do to stop it.

Remove trunk liner. Put a light dusting of baby powder down. Close trunk and wet rear of car with hose. Check for leaks. May be a tail light leaking.

Why is my heater on the passenger side is blowing out cold air no matter what?


hello there,I presume when you hit the deer and he hit your hood the impact enough could have been sufficient to knock a part loose or out or cause damage to some underlying part even though it did not seem as big of a deal to you. Although we can't totally focus on the deer as the corporate and should not really focus much on the cause because it's been like that for such a long time, the car could have been damaged by anything two years ago not necessarily the deer. In any event you should take your vehicle to a mechanic, there will not be much that you can do to remedy this issue.
But if you insist on having some type of solution that you could employ I would start with checking the fuse box making sure that no fuses are lose or damage or blown in making sure that relays are tightly fit it in thier receptacles you can also look under your hood for obviously damaged parts you can also search online to see where the components that control the passenger side of the air conditioner or heater unit is located and try to observe damage to that area or those parts.

Good luck and thanks

check your trunk lock mechanism. it might not be locking properly and not seating right due to rear damage and trunk lights are on and that can drain the battery overnight. have it adjusted.

2000 chrysler cirrus door locks and interior lights cycling on and off and random times while driving


the deer incident is unlikely related to the problem. there are several on-board computers in modern vehicles responsible for the control of different functions inside as well as features. that includes the safety systems as well. the airbags and seatbelts have their own computer, as does the anti-lock brakes. there is a separate module responsible for storing the time of day, remembering radio presets, and the theft deterrent system...i believe the latter is causing your issue, making your doorlocks cycle inadvertently.

You probably tripped the Inertia sensor which cut off power to your fuel pump. It has a reset button and can be located either in the trunk or rear cargo area or behind the front kick panels. Use the Browser and look up your Year and Model for specific part location.

Looking for the drain holes in the trunk of the car, both sides are holding water


if you can not find the drain holes which are fairly small drill as 3/8" hole in the lowest point and push in a rod about the same size and draw the rod back towards the rear of the vehicle. That way the tires will not throw any road debries up inside the hole and the hole is large enough at all time to drain. At Zeibart years back that was done to all rear quarter panels and rocker panels for better drainage

Water leaks can be really evasive, It could be coming from the rear glass where it seals against the body or it could be coming from the seams where the quarter panels and roof panels meet. (at the lower corners of the back glass/trunk lid area.) The best way to find these things are to water-test the vehicle. You can look for water entering the trunk area if you can find someone you trust to run water over the trunk and back glass area while you are inside the trunk with a flashlight. If this does not yield any answers, it may be necessary to remove the rear seat and interrior panels and headliner to look for water running into the cabin area. If you see any water, follow it uphill to locate the point of entry. I have even seen windshield area roof leaks fill the rear floor pans of a car that was parked nose-up on a hill.

Car trouble


I would start here first....

The "inertia switch" which shuts off fuel to the engine in the event of a collision or jolt on a 1991 through 1996 models, as well as on 1998 coupes, is located in the rear of the vehicle, near the right (passenger's side) strut tower. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-sided trim panel. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-side trim panel. On hatchback and wagon models, there may be an access door secured by clips. On some models you may need to remove the lower quarter trim panel on the right side, however it is easier to cut an access hole directly above the switch.
