Does it have a sweet smell like coolant? Or does it smell more like a wet pair of socks? Probably no smell or wet socks smell and if so the drain for your under dash ac unit is stopped up. Look under your vehicle right about where your feet would be if sitting in the car. You should find an open ended hose about the size of your little finger. If nothing is dripping out of it or very little is while ac is running then it's stopped up. Sometimes a coat hanger ran up the hose will get it un stopped. Or some even blow up it with air compressor to free the blockage.

Oh use caution with hanger method. Just ease it up the hose till water starts coming out. Don't want to poke a hole in anything else.

Also check the weatherstripping on the driver door.

Try the air first. Less risk of damage.

Thank you all for the answers my daughter has a 2004 Dodge Stratus coupe and I'm hoping that that is the issue / floorboard underneath her driver's seat in the back is wet I will try what you guys said and hope it works again thank you all for your advice..

Will it damage the electrical system?

If it has a sunroof take a look at the conors once you open it it has two holes that should be free from debris ,with a wire be carefull and pick in to them both and make sure water runs free.some times easy fix dose it.
