IF a Vaccume hose comes off OR is bad going 2 the DASH Controls that will happen OR a bad Actuator or Actuator door (stuck) will cause that.Make sure the vaccume Canister is not cracked (if it hs one) Usally it's a very small Vaccume line(hose) that causes the Problem. You either have a vacuum leak in the heater control system, or a cable that has come off of its control panel...

Why would standing water accumulate on the floorboards of a 2001 Saturn L200?

On my 2003 Saturn L200, the reason I had standing water accumulating on the floorboards is that a previous owner had the windshield replaced (at dealership, I believe) and it was improperly sealed! Apparently, there are two places where the windshield needs to be sealed (an inner lip, then all around the glass at the outside edge). It took several attempts, two replacement carpets and watertesting before Saturn figured out the problem and properly repaired it.
