Do you have after market CD player ,if you use power to it straight from battery rather than get it from ignition switch ,can happen

with engine of open either battery cable and put your d.v.o.m on amp in series(battery cable to one of the dvom,and the other side of it to same side of battery you opened),

see if you draw more than few Milli amp,then you either have short to ground.or some thing stays on like glove box light,ash tray light, or trunk light,light under hood,
or may be when you closing hood ,trunk or doors some wire get pinched and cause short to ground

1998 Chevy Lumina has check Engine light on and code says egr valve which has been replaced now what


Check engine lights sometimes do not go off right away. To reset the check engine light, disconnect your battery, turn the lights on, on your car ( to drain any power left in the computer systems), reconnect the battery and the light should be off. If it comes back on, the EGR valve was not installed properly.

1990 6 cly chevy lumina starter


Assuming it will start again once it is warmed up, it is likely the battery is in poor condition/will not hold a charge. Unhook the battery once the car is running; if it continues to run, your charging system is probably OK, and the problem is likely to be the battery. If the problem continues after replacing the battery, you probably have a slow drain or short somewhere in the wiring harness. Best of luck on that one.
