A good trick to finding exactly where it is leaking from is to take flour or baby powder, and very lights dust the entire inside area where the leak could be coming from. Do this right before you know it is going to rain and it will leak. when you go out to check it after the rain, it should be very easy to see where the water came in and washed away the powder. I would do it along the rubber gasket around the door from the back edge of the window where it meets the roof, all the way down past the door hinges, as well as the windshield.

After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.

i fixed mine by pulling each and every fuse in all the fuse boxes and replacing them with new ones. the hhr fuses have a tendency to work loose and cause all kinds of little problems. i searched the forums for the answer to the traction control light problem and never found an answer that worked until i talked to a "shade tree" mechanic in my area and he told me to do the fuse thing. been a month now and no more problems.

Testimonial: "The comments I left are the solution. The fuse thing does not do anything. It's a red herring. I replaced only the one that's associated with P0010 and It's been months."

best bet is to stop in at a Pep Boys, Autozone, or similar big autoparts seller, and ask for free trouble code scan, which should pinpoint area causing problem. If not obvious by codes, what is necessary to repair the problem code, get back to us with those codes and we will be glad to assist you further. Better this way, takes away the guess work, and saves you money, as well as getting it right the first time.

SOURCE: i noticed when it rains passenger side floor gets

I have seen some problems with water coming in through the cabin air filter. (Also known as passenger compartment air filter - see picture) Sometimes this is caused by a buildup of leaves and debris in the cowl area that causes water to overflow into the filter area. Sometimes this is caused by the filter not being installed correctly. I have even seen the water diverter that goes over the top of the filter get discarded by quick-lube "specialists". Anyway, these conditions will allow water to enter into the vehicle through the heater system. Many times I have seen the filter so badly damaged by water and debris that it ends up in the blower motor and stops it from running. This is where I would look for the problem first.

2009 Chevy HHR water in floor passenger side front and back after heavy rain car was just sitting all day not driving where did 2 inches of clear water in floor come from,

Check the cabin air intake. Chances are the weather strip that lines part of the opening has come off. The intake should be accessible beneath the trim at the base of the windshield on the passenger side.

Check all weep holes for clogs below the windshield, it sounds like it may be coming from the fresh air intake. During the heavy rain, it will fill up with water if the weep holes are clogged.

I have a 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo SS. Everytime it rains I get standing water on the passenger side floor. I have changed the cabin air filter and it still is happening. Getting worse with every rain

Hi, very likely you have a leak from the wind shield and these can be proven or disproved by running tap water on the passenger side of the windshield. If the windshield is leaking a technician should be able to reseal the strip around the windshield or replace the windshield if its broken. Thank you for using fixya!

Water leaks into passenger cabin when it rain or van is washed on passenger side. This is where the wiring runs and is shorting the locks. Any ideas where the leak may be from. I checked the cabin...

Couple of spots to check - check rubber seal around door(s), check seal around windshield, and if equipped with sunroof, check the drain tubes (they get plugged and back up into cabin) An easy way to check for leaks - use compressed air around suspect points - have someone inside listening

Maybe. If you have a fixed antenna on that side of the vehicle, the large rubber gromet on the wire leading into the passenger compartment may have come out, allowing lots of rain water to enter the vehicle. Happened on my 94 and flooded the passenger side.

Whenever it rains, water ends up on my drivers side floor board. It also seems to short out my fuel pump, and keep my truck from firing. 1999 F150 Extended Cab, V8 5.4 330 cubic inches

Leak around the windshield.Have seen alot of these. If you have access to an air compressor it is pretty easy to find the leak just spray some foam window cleaner around the outside of the windshield and the hit it with air on the inside. It will blow the foam when you hit the leak. You will most likely have to have the windshield cut out and resealed and unfortunately half the time they crack when doing this.
