Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
I have a 02 Pontiac Grand Am V6. I was told my battery was bad so I got a new one and a month later the same problem. 2 days in the garage without being driven the battery has to be charged to start. If I drive it every day it is fine. No lights are left on and the battery cables down to the starter are good. the charging system was checked too and nothing was found. Is there any idea on what could be slowly draining the battery?
A few things... to test you need a multimeter.... unhook the positive side of the battery and hook the meter between the post and the connector.. measure current.... there should be a miniscule draw from your radio (memory) and that's about it. if there is more draw then there really should be... time to troubleshoot.... and that requires pulling fuses till you narrow down where the current drain is...
