Question about 2002 Chevrolet Suburban

2 Answers

Dead Chevy '02 Suburban

Drove it about 10 miles, parked it, came back 1 1/2 hours later and no power, no interior lights, no activity when the key is turned, nothing. Battery is new. Only sign of life is the security light under the steering column blinking. What gives? Temp locally is teens and twenties, if that has a bearing on anything. Help!

By tracing the leads with a multimeter, we finally determined that the fault was an internal break or disconnection in the positive battery terminal.

If you don't have headlights, the battery connections would be the first thing to check. The truck gets power thru the cables going to the starter and ground to the engine and frame.
If you have headlights but nothing else when you turn the key on, it could be the key switch.

Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.
