Flooded Back Floorboards...

Since: Dec 09

The entire back floor board of my 2007 equinox has been flooded 4 or 5 times now to the point where the floor mats are dripping wet when I pick them up. It seems to start from the beam between the front and back doors where the seatbelt bolts to the floor on both sides. I've literally sucked gallons of water out with a carpet shampooer several times now.
Then tonight my "service traction control" and "service stabilitrak" lights both came on. Maybe something to do with the wires being wet from the flooding? I dont know.
The flooding isn't from the sunroof or door seals, so any ideas on what else it could be?
Has this happened to anyone else?

for starters check your spare tire, i bet you have gallons of water in that bay... your back door hatch seal on top is not sealing correctly and is leaking water into it. you might also have a bad odor which is the mildew

about the service lights, its probally water damage suffered from soaking.

i have the same problem but right now its frozen solid in near my spare tire.

hope this helps!

Yes!!! This is horrible, I am liking my Equinox less and less everyday! Everytime it rains hard my drivers side and passenger floor boards fill with to the point I have to put towels down to drive becauase my jeans get wet!! And my stabilitrack and traction control light are on!!
I have had so many problems with this SUV. Does any one else had the same problem? Has anyone else had it fixed, I don't want to take it to the dealer I am afraid of the bill!!
