JRJKU What is the powder test? Would like to try it.

TomSawyer2112 Tseg, if there's been a considerable drop in temperature recently, that's probably why your TPMS light came on. For every 10 degree rise or fall in ambient air temperature, tire pressure will rise or fall approximately one PSI. If your tire pressure has been marginally ok due to coldness and a really cold snap comes, that can be enough. In those cases sometimes you'll notice once you've driven awhile, your TPMS light will go off if the tires warm enough internally to cause the pressure to rise to an "adequate" level for the TPMS "threshold".

Tseg I've tried various fixes over a 1/2 year... every time it seems solved... can go weeks without any moisture, then a huge rain and its soaked again (although now it is a frozen rug @ 5 degrees outside!). I think it is directionally getting better. It seems like it gets wet a lot less frequently and with less intensity, but maybe the rains are less frequent? Over time I've just started to care less.

Yesterday my son opened the passenger door which had not been opened since this latest intense cold spell and the whole door seal came off the door, frozen to the frame of the Jeep. It was not frozen on too tight and came right off and popping it back in place on the door was quite easy. Maybe this re-seal will fix it? If not, maybe I take it to the dealership in the spring.

Of course my (2012) low tire pressure sensor came on last night when I started the car... coldest day of the year. None of my tires looked low but I'll have to take the gauge to them today to see what's up.

bassani Hmm..havent had my 2015 jeep for much over a week and noticed water on the slush mat on the passenger side one morning.
Seemed just like water. I think i rubbed some on my fingers to check but was in a rush. It was warm when it happened so i was likely running the A/C the day before but it was also rainy. Havent noticed any since and its been cold as a witch's tit so no AC.

My JK was built for me so its is literally brand new so i find it difficult to believe that the design of the AC drain is so flawed it could have gotten clogged with only a few days use but what do i know.

I'll keep an eye on it to see if it does it again to me while not using the AC

Vou Xiong I just bought a 2013 jeep Wrangler 4 months ago and I just noticed mine was doing the same thing. I went fishing this weekend and I blasted the AC all the way home. Was going to clean my jeep when I noticed it was wet in the driver and passenger side. I am calling Jeep Dealership on Monday I will let you know what happend.

oilwell1415 Another vote for the condesate drain. It should be visible on the firewall from underneath. You can usually clear them out temporarily with a piece of wire, but once all of that crap is in there it will plug again. This is a good reason to install the HVAC filters from the auto air system. $6 to prevent this is a good investement.

Slcbrian Both of our 2012 jk and jku do it... I bought mine 2 weeks ago and noticed it 2 days later.. Have not had time to go by the dealership to them to give me some bs story as to what it is..

2five22 The other possibility is that a heater hose is leaking coolant. Touch the liquid and if it feels 'slimy' or like a thin oil when rubbed between your fingers, it is a likely coolant leak.

Are you running the air conditioning? Do you drive in a humid area? What distance do you typically drive in one trip one way to work/school/etc.?

Did it look like a bunch of caulking? That's the heat shield/sound deadener. It's under the carpet in several spots.

When folks remove their carpets and bedline the interior, it's usually preferred to hack it out--it's a pain. When my carpets started showing dampness after rains, that's what I did. Now I just shake out a damp all rubber floor mat or towel out a bit of water after a hard rain and it's good. No carpet. Much better.

2five22 A/C condensor tubes get clogged up with leaves, spider webs, and anything else that can make its way into the tube. Some vehicles are easy to clean out and some are a pain. A Chilton manual should show it.

superdavis78 Same thing happened me on my 2010....needed the door seal replaced. Leave the floor mat out and use a shop vac to suck up all the water. Leave the mat out for a couple days later to make sure it is 100% dry. If the door seal isn't replaced then it will leak again. Might be something different, but sounds exactly what happened to me.

Usually it's just a plugged up drain line which is usually a pretty easy fix but if you have the ext warranty take it to the dealer and have them figure it out.

Sure, why not?

That said, I'm pretty sure I've seen this problem mentioned elsewhere here--something about a clogged or misdirected drain pipe for the AC condensation. I recall it being fixed too . . . I think at home DIY style.

Make sure you spend some quality time searching. It's always best to already know the answer.

funny guy! Definitely interested to hear more about this and how it happened

SXR311 Trade the wife in for a rental?

Ok, Im joking and that wasnt nice.

I'm gonna watch this thread as my Jeep is doing the same thing.
05-18-2012 09:09 PM
DonC72 Quick update.

It's the AC.

I have been driving the Jeep for the last few days with lots of rain, it's bone dry under the rubber Qtec mat.

I let my wife drive it today to work and the passenger floor is wet- she loves her AC cranked up to 11, damn her. It was hot out and not a drop of rain out here in PA.

So what can I do? Is this worth a service visit while I have my ext warranty?

MTH I just put up links to a bunch of threads on passenger side leaks here.

Very, very common. It seems there are a few possible causes.

I glanced at the door seals and the like, but when I didn't see anything obviously out of place I just pulled out my passenger side carpet and sprayed plasti-dip on the floor. After a big rain I just wipe it out with a paper towel. Problem solved.
05-14-2012 11:44 AM
DonC72 Let me go check. I think it's water, no smell to it from when I first discovered it, but let me verify. I was drinking good beer that day. God I hope I didn't urinate on the jeep. Lol, jk.
05-13-2012 02:05 AM
themoneypit Does it feel like regular water or does it have a thin greasy feeling like antifreeze.
05-13-2012 01:54 AM
keod What is the powder test (googled but couldn't find it)?
05-12-2012 10:38 PM
dkeven do the powder test again, at the door bottom inside. mine leaks at the top but runs down the seal and goes over the door opening right below the hinges can watch it in a downpour sitting in the drivers side. Qtec mats help it to stay wet longer.
05-12-2012 09:18 PM
Spro12JK Good luck!! Keep us posted.
05-12-2012 09:15 PM
DonC72 Know what, my wife did take it today, and she always has the air on (WHY! ) , I'll see what it's like after I take it tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion
