    I have a 2001 Chevy burb 2500 2 wheel drive with the 6.0L and 4L80E tranny.

    For some reason thier is water accumalating on the driver side floor board. I've had it happen on other trucks on the passenger side due to the heater core, what would cause it on the drivers side? I havn't had a chance to get in their and look yet.

    Check your door & windshield seals, sometimes the windshield seal will slide down.

    I have an 08 extended cab and noticed water under the rear seats. Took it in to the dealer and they replaced my third bake light. They said it was common for the seal on the third brake light to leak. Luckily they fixed it under warranty.

    I don't think that is what is happening here, but i wonder if it could possibly be coming in through the roof, maybe where the roof rack mounts?

    I had that issue in my truck as well. what it turned out to be on mine is when it would rain, wash etc the water would run down the front pillar and directly over where the wires went from the cab to the door. it would then fill the space there and spill into the lower door channel and onto the carpets. to fix it I just pulled the boot back that encases the wires put a bunch of silicone caulking/window sealer on the grommet and put the boot back and smoothed out the silicone. no leaking since. took a long time to find it. had someone running the hos while I tried to chase down water drain routes.

    I have had this issue for six months and it has puzzled the heck out of me because it only happened in the rain; not when I hosed the truck or went through the truck wash at work. I figured I has a hole in the floor pan but couldn't find it. While I was doing my 184,000 mile service I lifted off the trim by the driver's door and removed the left kick panel by the parking brake. I lifted the carpet and found the the whole pad under the carpet was soaked. I investigated further to find a cable the exited the floor right there. Turned out to be the shifter cable. I didn't know this was there. It looks like over time that rain water from the road has seeped up the shifter cable through the grommet (which looks to be worn as I work next door to a lime plant and the lime has eaten it away a bit). The pad then acted as a sponge and soaked up the water.

    I am now drying the pad with a fan and will silicone the heck out of the top and bottom of the grommet to prevent further water penetration. Mystery solved!
