Question about 1990 Chevrolet K1500
I own a 1990 Chevy cheyenne 1500 deisel. the batteries wont hold a charge after I shut the truck off. A new alternatir, 2 new batteries and fuses as well as a new ignition have been installed. Would you know what the probleem would be? how to fix it and could it be done myself? Dead without a jump. Thank you
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.
