Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
If i leave my truck parked for 4 to 5 days, when i try to start it up it is dead... if I drive it every day it maintains a charge. I installed a new battery to no avail... the problem remains
I am willing to bet money you have a module that isn't going to sleep on you, your truck has many many modules, or small computers through out it, they control everything electronic your truck does from locking the door to turning on the a/c, they are designed to go into a sleep mode within 5 minutes after you shut the key off to save battery power, well if one of them is not going to sleep it will constantly pull power, even when it isn't doing anything, i would recommend taking it to a dealer and having them do a module check to see if they are responding, they can also get a readout of which modules are going into sleep mode and which aren't. it may cost a couple hours labor, but they have the tools to find it in a couple hours where as the average joe could search and be frustrated for weeks trying to find it, i know this because i was a GM tech for many years, and its shocking how easy it is to find a problem with the right computer equipment
