air conditioning can cause moisture in the air to condense, especially around vents where the air is moving at high speed. If you live in a very humid area, this could be caused by the air conditioning being so cold that the moisture is condensing out as soon as the cold air meets the warm, damp air. Try running the air conditioner at a higher temperature setting, or on 'normal' instead of 'max'. The more likely senario is that water is leaking in from an area below the windshield under the hood. There is box (under the plastic cover at the bottom of the windshield on the passenger side) that allows air from outside to be pumped inside. If you have this area open you will a see foam seal painted the same color as the vehicle at the base of the box. This so called seal dry rots and GM knows this; however, the seal cannot simply be replaced from what I was told by a windshield replacement shop and a dealer. It is riveted together and must be cut apart and then reassembled. This issue caused the blower motor to seize after the leak corroding the internals of the motor itself.

If you are sure it is water and not coolant, then the A/C Condenser drain line is stopped up. You will find it near the firewall on the passenger side. Look for a tube under the Jeep. If it is coolant, which will taste sweet, your heater core is leaking and must be replaced.

How do you repair a wet floor board in a Jeep Grand Cherokee?

If its on the passenger side, it is probably the air- conditioner condenser drain plugged up and this is not good. From what I have read this is better left to a qualified Jeep mechanic. when the drain gets plugged up, the water that normally drips into the body, frame area collects on the passenger side floor. Unless someone knows a cheaper fix. Its 1000.00+ at a dealer.
