Water on the front passenger seat floor and car won't start

Asked by Jun 06, 2015 at 03:29 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It rained a couple of days ago and water somehow got into my car on the front passenger
seat floor. My speakers won't work, my power doors won't work and my car won't start. I
looked online and it said the main control box was under the front passenger seat.

Any ideas on how to fix this or what I can do?

You may have to just let it dry out,and hope that it did not damage it.

I have. It happened on Wednesday I believe. I just went out to check if anything worked, and still no luck. I may just have to get it towed and bring it to a shop

I had this happen to me. I had just bought a used car a week later it Rained. It started but when I got to work it did not shut off. I turned key off and removed it car run for hours. Garage took it gave it back they couldn’t find anything wrong. It rained again would not start. Called garage it started for them. Rained again it started but lights would go off, the power locks would start clinking, horn would beep, then it just shut off. Each time I noticed water on the floor. Called the garage. It was fine when it didn’t rain.it turned out the windshield was not put in correct and it was leaking on the fuse panel .
