I would have the battery stress tested. I know autozone will do it for free and most other auto part stores will as well.

Interior lights will not turn off


have a load test done on the battery as it appears that it has a faulty cell. 2 hours for an internal light to flatten the battery indicates that the battery is no good as an interior bulb draws around 5 watts and on a good battery that would amount to around 24 hours usage. Besides all the other problems indicate a lower than required voltage.

do you mean interior light comes on , if so one of the door switches are not being depressed to shut of light this may include rear hatch door switch also , open one door at a time and depress switch with finger if light goes out try next door , also if light has been on you may have flat battery check charge first.

Car will not start


Hi Kevin, Have the battery checked and if it's fine, turn off everything and close the doors. Check to see if there is a spark as you connect the positive terminal. Keep in mind the computer, radio and clock memories draw all the time, as does the interior cabin light if the door is open, so expect a very small spark. Any heavy spark indicates too much currant is being drawn and will need investigation. Regards John

I have a short that is draining my battery just started no probelm beforeare do i start w


You need a electrical multitester meter able to measure in dc current mode, 10amp range should be more than enough. Nothing flashy, cheap and cheerful will do. Make sure the car alarm is off. Disconnect one terminal from your battery and connect your meter 'in series' between the battery terminal and the detached terminal lead. Almost all the circuits in the car should be dead when doors are closed. Ease each fuse out one at a time and look at the response of the meter. At some point you will locate a fuse that on its removal causes no current to flow - most likely the culprit but heck that this is not just the clock. To be sure of your findings checkout the meter response to opening a door and having the interior lights come on. Remove the fuse that powers the interior lights and again check your meter. A process of elimination will highlight where the problem lies. Some years back by girlfriend spent a day shifting a whole pile of stuff in her trunk. Next day car was as dead as a door nail. Traced the fault, using the above method down to a bent metal tab in the trunk. The tab's job was to make contact with the trunk light interrupt switch. When the trunk lid was closed the light should go off but it was on the whole time but we could not see it. I bent the tab back and the car was fixed for good. Crazy!

(1997 GMC Jimmy) Battery will randomly go dead


I would check for a draw. You can do this by disconnecting the negative cable from the battery and hooking a test light from the cable to the battery. The light will be on if something is taking power off of the battery such as, dome light, glove box light, radio ect. make sure to have doors shut and everything off when you do this so it wont give you a false reading. If the light is on, you have a draw. if it is off you dont have a draw. Then from there you can figure out where the draw is coming from by opening the drivers door and accessing the fuse panel(OPENING THE DOOR WILL KEEP THE LIGHT ON BECAUSE IT WILL OPEN TH ECIRCUIT FOR THE DOME LIGHT, YOU CAN TAPE OR HOLD THE SWTICH INSIDE THE DOOR JAMB TO CLOSE THE CIRCUIT)when you access the fuse panel you can pull each fuse 1 at a time until the light goes off, when the light goes off. check what the fuse is for, that is where your draw is coming from. Common draws come from a faulty radio or glove box light stays on.

Interior lights won't go out. I closed all the doors and moved the switches


Make sure that the thumb wheel switch is not turned all the way up. If this is ok then take some WD40 and spray a liberal amount into the door latches and open and close the doors firmly a few times to see if this unsticks the door ajar switches.

Battery goes dead randomly ,other times starts right up


I had the same problem, every 3-4 months the battery was dead. Found to be the computer staying in a self diagnostic mode that was slowly draining the battery.
