SOURCE: (1997 GMC Jimmy) Battery will randomly go dead

I would check for a draw. You can do this by disconnecting the negative cable from the battery and hooking a test light from the cable to the battery. The light will be on if something is taking power off of the battery such as, dome light, glove box light, radio ect. make sure to have doors shut and everything off when you do this so it wont give you a false reading. If the light is on, you have a draw. if it is off you dont have a draw. Then from there you can figure out where the draw is coming from by opening the drivers door and accessing the fuse panel(OPENING THE DOOR WILL KEEP THE LIGHT ON BECAUSE IT WILL OPEN TH ECIRCUIT FOR THE DOME LIGHT, YOU CAN TAPE OR HOLD THE SWTICH INSIDE THE DOOR JAMB TO CLOSE THE CIRCUIT)when you access the fuse panel you can pull each fuse 1 at a time until the light goes off, when the light goes off. check what the fuse is for, that is where your draw is coming from. Common draws come from a faulty radio or glove box light stays on.

This could be a problem with your primary switch in the driver's door. Everything passes through that switch. Verify voltage continuity to the switch (Haynes or Chilton will give you a conclusive wiring schematic), and you must also verify that the switch itself is not faulty. Using a DMM (digital multi meter), measure the resistance (ohms) between 2 contact points, then hit the switch and verify that this number increases.

SOURCE: 2007 yukon. battery goes dead in a few hours. It

I think you have what is called a parasitic drain. First check to make sure the light in the glove box, under hood, indicator light showing door is ajar, interior light ect all go out when they are suppose to.

If this is something that happen only once every in 6 to 12 months I think you are probably dealing with something that is human caused, something left on and not a mschanical issue. If it happens repeatedly when it does occurs then your parasitic drain is probably more of a short in the system. You can disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent yourself from getting stuck when this is going on. When this is happening you pull fuses for various systems and see if the battery still discharges the next day. If the battery is discharged the next day then those systems whose fuse were pulled are not involved. If the battery does not discharge then you have identified which systems are involved. Again this works only if you are having the battery discharge repeatedly.

You can try disconnecting the battery cable then try to openit with the key There is an electrical switch they call it the actuator its inside the tailgate trim panaland easy to replace This sounds likely to be what your problem is the switch may be shorted and in lock mode all the time

Key locks don't operate with key when battery is dead


With no juice just what did you expect? to have them work with dead battery do the following:

Get yourself a smaller 12 volt battery and hook the negative to the engine. Then hook up the positive to the positive line that you already have going to your starter under the car. That should send juice through the wires and power the locks when you use the key.

This car might not get enough exercise. By that I mean there are things that are running all the time, remote entry systems, clocks, alarm systems. You may have a new battery, but it needs to be kept up to snuff. Sitting alone in the garage with NOTHING running, the battery will lose about 1% per month in ideal circumstances. As I said, your battery is powering all kinds of things while sitting in the garage so the drain is more than the 1% I mentioned. You may want to consider a trickle charger on this car if you are not able to drive it for at least 20 miles or more per week every week.

It seems your average mileage is just under 150 per week. I'm guessing you don't drive this car much on short trips, rather the bulk of your miles were highway on trips.

If I missed the boat on this question, please add a comment and I will try again.

Has been sitting for months, dead battery. door locks are jammed


Take nozzle of WD-40, stick it in key slot as far as you can, lots of spray in there and keep spraying as you pull little red nozzle out slowly, and give it a little time, and try working key, first just slide it in & out a few times then keep trying to turn it. May take 2 or 3 sprayings to unseize things.
