open as in ajar?

I am not a big fan of doing it, but have battery disconnected overnight. also, read my post here saying "not a day without learning something new". basically, full blown ECM reset procedure. Doors and windows are controlled by BCM, but it might exorcise the evil spirits as well.

Question Thank you!!!

I appreciate the help!! I sure hope it works! Lol. Maybe you can help me figure out this other weird
phenomenon: This is my second car in a row that has a soaking
wet floorboard! My last car, a Dodge Stratus, was wet like this one!! Not just damp, but a puddle! Nobody could figure it out. I just
bought this Buick on Tuesday and again with the puddle in the
floor!! Ugh!!

Only really three ways for wet floorboards: Windshield leak, heater core leak, clogged ac drain. Okay, maybe a fourth - body rusted through somewhere.

maybe you just have soft heart for wet spot in your cars? As you apparently keep buying them that way.

like GG said... I vote for side windshield seal leak. Or even top seal leak, then it drips down along the pillar A and onto the floorbed.

You can clean it well, degrease, and put a ton of clear silicone from HD all around the windshield trim. If it stops the problem (works only temporary) - you know what to do next. I had it done/redone several times on my Silverado, finally gave up and replaced windshield. good ever since.
