Had this vehicle for about 9 months. I've started to notice that it randomly will hesitate for a moment on take off, but then it gets up and goes. Today everything went downhill though. I drove it this morning and came home parked it in the driveway for a few hours until work. Went out to leave for work and it wouldn't start. I jumped it using a jump pack, and found that I had not left any lights or anything on so I was confused. On the way to the babysitters (only 1/2 mile away) the battery gauge jumped as high as it would go and then the check gauges light came on. I pulled into the driveway and turned off the car in hopes that would help, however it would not start again and then I started hearing a weird sound from the passenger side under the dash. We found that if we opened the glove box the sound stopped, if we closed it the sound started again. My husband removed a little plug and the sound stopped. We jumped it again and took it home, but the battery gauge did the same thing. While inspecting the car we found that the front floor was damp and the rear floor was completely sopping wet. Any ideas? I'm completely car illiterate and don't have a bunch of money to be putting into uneeded parts. Anybody that can help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much
