Hi. You would need to put a volt or amp meter between the positive terminal of the battery and the battery itself. You have a very large draw on the battery after everything is shut off. Watch the meter and start unpluging fuses to see if the meter goes down. Make sure your doors are shut and the ignition has been off for at least 30 minutes so the computer will go to sleep. If the meter doesn't go down after pulling all the fuses then start loooking for a short possibly in the seats if you have electric seats and other things like that. It may take a lot of looking around but something is causing a very big current draw on the batteries.

Can a 94 chevy cheyenne transmission interchange with a 97 chevy silverado tranmission


Will it physically fit? yes. Will it be a direct replacement any everything hook right up and plug right in? If we are talking about an automatic then no. 1994's wiring was completely different than the 1997. Can it be made to work? possible, but I believe it would be more trouble trying to make it work than if the correct transmission were located and installed. If it is a cost issue where he has a good trans out of a 1994 he might see if a salvage yard will do some partial trading for the correct trans.
