2008 trailblazer occasionally runs the battery dead while off and parked in about 4 hours time. Have had both alternator and battery checked. Both are fine.


Somewhere in your TBlazer something is on/draining power. Light, electric fan, a shorted wire of some sort. Do you have a towing package harness for trailers ? Check the harness if you do.
Check the easy stuff first. The light or something else drawing power like it should be except it is not cutting off when it should. After that the stuff gets more difficult. A warm/hot wire with the vehicle off would be a hint.
These things can be a hassle to find unless you are lucky or living right.

How do I install a wiring harness on a 1996 Chrysler Concorde to pull a trailer hook up the light harness


Lots of late model cars are fitted with a plug designed to make fitting a towing harness easy. Yours might have one of these, the dealer or the handbook should be able to tell you this.

Again lots of late model cars have a CAN-BUS system and in the absence of an integrated wiring socket a five-way relay and an independent supply should be used to power the trailer. This is a good idea for every car that must be wired the old-fashioned way even though it takes longer and costs a little more because the vehicle switches do not have to cope with the additional current load of the trailer lights.

Wiring the old-fashioned way can be made easier using Scotchloks but stripping the wire leading to each light and soldering the towing harness (or the relay harness) to it and re-insulating and finishing with a tiny cable tie is the best way for a reliable and long-lasting job. More detailed instructions are usually supplied with the towing harness.

Don't forget to also install a direction indicator (audio or visual) repeater alarm or tell-tale.

No power to tail light on trailer- 2004 Dodge durango factory tow


If this is a factory light harness for the trailer hookup on your Caravan. Look under the hood for a fuse box. Many 2000+ vehicles have this with separate fuses just for the trailer lights.
