In order too keep things that control my fuel pump and PW & PL from shorting out again, I'd like to fix the issue. Any ideas? Suggestions?
My actuall issue turned out to be 3 diffrent things...
1) Under the passenger wiper arm is a seal thats supposed to keep water from entering the HVAC ( AC intake duct ) Duct, it was dripping into the duct and then into the car dead center, the trickles of water would actually go left and right filling the passenger and driver sides with water... We have nasty rains here from time to time... lol
2) I kept finding a small amount of water on the passenger side, and the drivers side was always full.... I found that the door seals had shrunk... I RTV them at the lower points and added a section to take up for the shrinkage... At this point the passenger side leak was cured... The drivers side was still full after a nasty rain...
3) After fighting with this car I called it quits for a while... Then once I had the right frame of mind I tore the car apart... Got under the dash where the parking brake cable had water streaming in.... Found a leak at the top of the dash... After sealing everything on the outside of the car at the area of the dash where I saw the leak, I found the leak to still be present.... I found a bad patch of sealer under the hood hinge... My all went right through the sealer into the car.... Cleaned iy up and sealed it with permatex RTV and the car had been totally dry seince then... Been close to a year so far...
