Question about 2001 Chevrolet Suburban

Turns off while driving

My 2001 Chevy Suburban shuts off sometimes after I have driven for a short while and then stops. I also had it diagnose by the Cheverolet mechanics and nothing shows any problems. Could someone please help with this.

HI,When electrical components such as a stater motor get hot they draw more amperage thus making it harder to turn over the motor. There are 3 possible things going bad (1) Battery (2) Battery Cables (corrosion) (3) Starter. I hope this helps lead you to the proper diagnoses.

I have a 2006 Chevy Suburban. The first battery had 25000 miles on it and the vehicle would just die. We'd have to jump start it. I replaced the battery and that one has 30000 miles on it ans is having the...

Do you have an aftermarket alarm or stereo installed in the car? Often times incorrectly wired aftermarket electronics will have too high a residual current draw and will prematurely drain a battery. Unfortunately, sometimes correctly wired in aftermarket electronics will also do this.

Also, if you simply don't drive the car much and only take short trips when you do drive it will prematurely drain a battery. Actually, it's not so much that it prematurely drains the battery, but rather the battery doesn't have enough time to recharge itself after the starting load.

If the car is stock and is regularly driven, then it is likely a wiring issue somewhere or an interior light is being left on. Some cars have lights in the engine bay that are supposed to shut on when you pop the hood. In short, any sort of residual draw on the electrical system can, over time, kill a battery prematurely.

Also, if you live in a cold climate this will also effect the starting power of the battery. CCA on a battery means Cold Cranking Amps. The more CCA a battery has the more starting power it has when cold. If you don't drive the car much a deep cycle battery MAY potentially also help.

I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 2001. the driver

Usually this problem is solved by opening the driver's door & looking for a broken wire. This wire usually breaks at the flex point of the harness between the door & frame. Carefully slice outer coating revealing hidden wires. The broken one is the culprit. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Engine shutting down in extreme heat

Mine does the same thing as far as shutting down on long trips---usually 1 1/2 - 2 hours. I don't think it's's got something to do with antitheft system
