Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
For the last few days i have been having to get a jump because every morning i come out to go to work my battery is dead i get a boost but something is still draining my battery. At first i thought it was the battery so i have replaced the battery numberous times then i thought it was the amp so i had a switch installed to turn off the amp it worked for a minuate but now its still doing it. Please help what is the problem.
Have you tested your alternator? Could be your alt isnt working and your battery is keeping yoyur car going so it is draining it till its dead. If you want to check it start your car and when its running take the negative cable off the battery if it dies then your alternator needs to be replaced.

you have something thats staying on with power when you shut the car off,first check all lights glove apartment,underhood,in trunk ,just because ther closed doesnt mean the light is off,check your car at night it might help to see the lights,if not another way is to take a multi meter to the battery and while some holds the meter pull out fuses in your fus box one at a time to see when the meter makes a change,this will help you to narrow down whats staying on and draining the power from the battery,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

Remove positive battery terminal from battery & put a 12 volt test light in line between cable & battery post. As long as 12 volt light is illuminated, you have a draw. Start pulling & re-installing fuses, one at a time,until you see it dim or go out. If it goes out, you found your draw. If it dims, slight draw, such as radio memory etc. if all else fails, make sure you know where they all go, then pull them all, and start putting back one at a time. When light comes on bright, you found the circuit causing the draw.

there is a large evaporative leak. keep away form ottozoo, they dont have the brain power to actually diagnose a light bulb., their job is to sell parts., if they sell you the wrong parts tough.Take it to a qualified repair shop that does a lot of GM work or the dealer.
