Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox LT
I was looking for an amp draw on the battery and hooked up my meter between the positive terminal and the disconnected positive cable and found a draw of 2 amps and started pulling fuses to identify the circuit and found the circuit. after replacing the fuses i went to start the car and the engine wont fire and the gas gauge now stays on empty when i filled up yesterday. any ideas?

RAP stands for Retained Accessory Power. It is the circuit responsible for powering accessories when the key is off. Sounds like something is staying on that shouldn't. Hard to say what though with the information here. if this started happening right after you put in the new radio i would check into that. otherwise start checking accessories like power mirrors,seats, locks and see it something is staying on that shouldnt. i good one to check would be the glove box light or the light under the hood. you can unplug them and then test your draw to see if thats where is was.

i would take it back, you paid to fix that problem, they misdiaganosed it, it sounds like a bad fuel sending unit or a bad ground wire to that unit, also gm had a lot of problems with those clusters ( gauge unit), good luck.

weird...first thing to do is get a scanner hooked up to see what caused the check engine light-free, at pretty much any retail auto parts operation-i wouldn't get overly concerned with the gas gauge right now, teh code that tripped the check engine light might explain that problem.
