THERE IS A LEAK IN THE ROOF OF MY TRUCK. THE WATER SATURATED THE FLOOR ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE. I NOTICED WATER DRIPPING FROM READING LIGHT ON DRIVER'S SIDE, AND FROM INSIDE FRAME ON DRIVERS SIDE. I WAS DOUCED WITH WATER FROM THE SUN ROOF WHERE THE WATER ACCUMMULATED. IT HAS CAUSED SEVERAL THINGS TO NOT WORK PROPERLY IE WHEN DOORS ARE ALL CLOSED IT THE ICON FOR IT BEING OPEN IS LIT, THE TRAVEL INFORMATION ON THE REAR VIEW MIRROR ONLY SHOWS DIRECTION, 3 DASHES APPEAR FOR THE dte, TEMPERATURE AND mpG, FOB ONLY UNLOCKS DOORS WILL NOT LOCK DOORS. CAN NOT CONTROL BACK WINDOW OR TAIL WINDOW FROM DRIVERS SIDE CONTROL PANEL. WHAT SHOULD I DO? I AM PULLING MY HAIR OUT!!!!

I have the same issue with my 03 Sequoia. When it rains, the back tailgate (or somewhere) leaks into the floor carpets and soaks the entire subcarpet (padding below carpet) until it dries up in May or June. I brought it to the dealer in the summer and they could not find the leak and wanted to keep it a couple days and charge several hundred dollars to take off the ceiling upholstery to isolate the leak. This would appear to be a defect, unfortunately by the time I realized what the musty smell was, it was well past the warranty period. Keep in mind that the carpet does not get wet only the padding below the carpet so it is not readily apparent unless you pull up the carpet.
