Ok. Do you use the air conditioning? does it work?

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

And is it a two door or four door?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i use it in the summer. It has been unseasonably cool here so not much use lately, but it works
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Ok. I did just want you to be aware that if the ac drain is plugged water can back up into the truck. But that does not sound like your problem. Just make sure it drips water on the ground when the ac is on. Is this a 2 or 4 door with or without sunroof?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
4 door with sunroof
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

It is likely that one of the sunroof drains is plugged. If you open the sunroof and look into the track at the corners you will see the drain hole. Which has hoses that runs down the headliner and down the body and drains out the vehicle. A lot of times tat drain backs up. you can check the drains by slowly pouring water into the trough of the sunroof and see if the water drains down quick. Or just blowing compressed air into the drains to clear them out is worth a shot as well. That would be the most likely and first place to check.
