Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Chevy
The alternators in these cars and trucks can have a bad diode that still allows them to funtion but drains down your batterery slowly over a few bdays with the key off. replacing the old alternator is the best place to start if your having this problem. then you would have to start troubleshooting the rest of the electrical system if that doesnt fix the problem. that is a much bigger task and often requires special guages, like voltmeters or ampmeters etc. good luck.
