Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
My car died when I'd let it sit overnight. So I'd have to jump it every morning. Took it in, the first dealership said it was the battery. I got a new battery. A week later, the same thing. Every morning dead. The ran tests for a week and concluded that there is a draw on my factory radio that drains the battery. Hmmm? so now I'm supposed to put in a new radio to fix the problem. Another $500. I don't want an after market radio, I simply want mine to work. Thoughts? Any junk yards or radios out of crashed Impalas I can use? This just seems sort of odd to me. My solution now, is that I pulled the fuse out of the radio. Starts great every morning... but no radio/cd.
I have had this problem with a few of my cars and I thought the same that my battery was gettin drained by the stereo but really my battery was going bad hich resulted in the radio staying on for some odd reason, but i replaced the battery and all is good with no more problems, so I would take my battery down and have it tested.
