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.

SOURCE: 2003 Impala - mystery problem???

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

SOURCE: Brand new battery is dead with nothing left on. Bad ground?

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.

2008 chevy equinox rear windshield wiper not working and battery dying. will work when jumping, but dies after being off a few minutes.


you have something draining the battery. you will need to find out were the drain is coming from. could be the alarm /radio/ external alarm module. you will need to find what is doing it. wipe motor could have a a short but that should not affect battery when the car is locked up.

"2003 Chevy Impala won't start". Car would not


The alternator is not charging,or the battery wont take a charge.If all accessories work fine when its running after you've boosted it,its likely the battery.

We have a 2004 Chevy impala that has a new starter, new battery. However, sometimes it just won't start. No reason. One day will be working fine then the next day won't start. Maybe try to start an hour...


Hi! Not sure what you mean by "not starting", but I think you mean the battery is completely drained? Try charging the battery and unplugging the review mirrow and pull the fuse for the radio. Wait 12 hours and see if there is juice left in the battery. My 2003 had a constant drain, this fixed it temporarily.

Needs a jump every day


It sounds like the battery has a dead cell in it. Replace the battery. If you have an alarm installed remove the in line fuse from the alarm and see if that stops the battery drain.

Either the alternator is not charging the battery or there is an improper drain on the battery. To test both you need a multimeter that will measure current and volts. If you can get one and can use it, let me know and I will continue.

Chevy tahoe won't turnover, power to everything, no clicking in starter to indicate that it is the starter, nothing happens when you turn the key? any sugg My problem is similar. My 2003 4wd will start...


Next time it won't start turn headlights on and see if they dim when you turn key to start, if they dim its most likely starter, if they don't dim possible starter switch, Have you tried to start it in neutral position? Try that, if it starts in neutral than its park neutral switch, if not could be starter switch, Just make sure you chk. all fuses and any relays associated with ignition first.
