Don't you have a circuit breaker?

Took my son's Patriot to the dealer yesterday to detect and fix the ongoing leak into the front passenger floor.

They called about an hour and a half after we dropped it off and said they had been running water on it for an hour and found nothing. The kept at it. Later in the afternoon they called back and said it was fixed.

The repair order said it was sealed/re-sealed around the front cowl and re-sealed at the windshield.

It is supposed to rain this week. We shall see.

07 Pat, no sunroof, water in dome lights

My Jeep is parked upward on a sloped driveway. I'm getting water in the dome lights and major condensation on the inside of the windshield. I've temporarily scotch taped the top outside windshield to body joint; that didn't help.

I notice the body to windshield side gasketing is somewhat loose so I definitely see a water path from the top corners of the windshield/body joint down along the side of the windshield. ( I'd want to silicone this up only as a last resort). I just can't see how it would run uphill to get into the lights. I'd appreciate any insight to this.

After a very heavy rain this spring, water began pouring out of the map light as I drove. The car is now back at the dealer for a third attempt at a repair, after two subsequent rain/leaking events.

I had the map light leak one day. I read on the forums that you can basically snake a line of 0.8 or smaller weed-eater line down the sunroof drains to clear any clogs. I did that and haven't had any leaks since. I also opened up that light and dried everything out with shop towels and a blow dryer just to make sure I don't end up with mold or anything.

That was a few weeks ago. Since then I drove it to Utah, and camped overnight in snowy conditions (got about 3 inches of snow overnight). So far, so good. Haven't seen any other leaking. I'll just cross my fingers and knock on wood now. ;p

Dome light leakage -Dealership replaced the track and "roof gutter" by removing inside headliner and focusing on sunroof drainage spots. Sealed and replaced. No leaks after water pressure test and heavy rains

Nice storm last night. Nice pool of water in my '16 Pat this morning. Came in through the map lights. Looks like it pooled into the Nav unit and shorted that out as well.
Dropping it off at the dealer tomorrow for them to 'inspect' it.
