SOURCE: Electrical Problem for a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer

Hey everyone with this problem! Theres a fuse under the hood in the front of the fuse box. Its black and its not in the bow itself but under the cover though! two nuts hold it in place where your cable line comes in from the battery. The fuse costs $15.00 avg. most anyplace! Easy to change and everything will work inside your vehicle! Without it the vehicle will start and run but you will have no functions on the interior, or dash!

SOURCE: car will not jump start

Check battery voltage. If volts are very low, put on charger. In many cases, you can't jump through a really dead battery... not enough voltage gets through to computer etc to make systems operate.
Battery may be used up... if it will not take a charge, replace it and check charging system before driving. PS: use a charger to charge battery. If it is very low, you candamage charging system in other vehicle. Also,,, You cleaned terminals already RIGHT???

SOURCE: Battery needs jump start if car is not driven for 3 days.

u either have a shorted cell in the battery or the system has a current draw like a glove box light being left on, try disconnecting the battery the next time you leave it, if it starts ok then u have a current draw and need to find the source of that draw.

Yeah, there is a draw. Disconnect the negative terminal and put test light or Volt meter in series, and then disconnect stuff, one thing at a time. when you get the offending item light will not longer light. Pull interior light fuse, as that is misleading when you open a door during this test.

First item to disconnect is the alternator, it has diodes that fail and sap power pretty quickly. Diodes can fail without giving any dash indication.

My truck is not charging i put brand new battery & alternator on it when i turn it of i need to boost it back up

You need to jump start it next day , is that what your trying to say ? When you turn it off you need to boost - jump start same thing when next day ? It's not your battery or alternator , you have a parasitic draw ! Something it draining your battery , a light is on a control module is not powering down ! You need to hook up a amp meter between the battery negative cable an post to see how much draw is happening ! Then you pull fuse's till the draw goes away ! parasitic draw test Bing Videos

What can I do to fix the battery from draining? Or is it something else?

Hello Dorothy, I doubt that it is your battery. The battery is drained down overnight because of a current draw. I would check to make sure the glove box light is not on. With the engine OFF, You can disconnect the positive battery cable and install a volt meter between the positive battery cable and the positive battery terminal. A draw on the electrical system will show on the volt meter as 12 volts. Disconnect fuses in the fuse box until the draw is no longer 12 volts. That might help you determine where the draw is coming from. A draw could also be caused by a problem in the alternator. You might need to isolate the alternator to find the draw.

I have a 2002 chevy cavalier. Battery is 2yo. Car will take a jump. Does not make any clicking noises, and lights,horn,radio work. Car would not start day 1,got jump ran fine,day 2 needed jump again, ran...

Weak connection between battery post and cable. Since the jumper cables bypass this, by clipping on the cable ends, the car will start with a jump. Takes less current to start a warm car than a cold one, hence it starts all day. I would look closely at the cable ends where they attach to the battery. Clean them until spotless with baking soda and water and terminal cleaner brush.

If this does not solve the problem, clean the chassis ground on the other end of the - battery cable and + cable where it connects to the starter.

Check your alternator output also. Battery should not be defective in 2 years.

Possible current drain when key is off. Put a voltmeter inline with the battery and check for draw. If you get more than a few millivolts something is on and drawing current. Glove box light maybe? Check by pulling fuses until you find the source of the draw.

One day my 1999 Dodge ram 1500 truck will start and if i leave it over night the next morning I will go out and it does not start, have to jump it. Changed alternator as well as new battery

Sounds like you have a draw in your electrical system. You will need a multi meter capable of measuring amperage. With the key out of the ignition, and the doors closed disconnect the positive cable from the battery. Hook one lead of your meter to the positive post of the battery. Place the other lead on the positive cable end. You should see less than .050 amps. Anything more and you have a draw. You will then need to pull fuses one at a time until the draw goes away. Then you can focus on that circuit to see what is causing the problem. Typically aftermarket radios, glove box lights, heated seats, and vanity lights are pretty common sources of draws. Let me know what you find and I'll see if I can't help you further.

Hello chuck5227
It sounds like there is a draw on the system. To test for an electrical draw, turn off everything in the
car, remove the keys and close the doors. Open the hood, if the light under the hood works unplug it or remove the bulb to avoid a false read. Remove the negative battery terminal, take a 12V test
light clip one end to the batt. terminal and touch the other end to the batt. post. If it lights up theres
a draw. To isolate the draw pull the fuses one at a time, start with the interior light fuse so you don't
have to hold the button in. Remove+replace the fuses one at a time until the light go's out. the fuse
you removed controls the circuit with the draw. Check the wires-connections and switchs on that
circuit. Before you start pulling fuses take a picture of the fuse block with a digital or your cell phone camera, this way if somthing unintended falls off or out you'll know where it go's.
Hope this helps.

Car will start after being jumped. the next day

you need to find out what is drawing on the battery you could have a bad alternator and the car is just running off the battery give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Slow to fast battery drain problem when engine is off.

If you connect a 12VDC test light in line, between your + battery post & + battery cable,(cable off battery obviously) the light will stay lit brightly as long as there is a draw. Keep in mind your radio will cause some due to memory function, clock etc. Pull stereo/radio fuse to eliminate that draw, then start removing fuses, and putting them back, watch light. If it dims, or goes out, you've found the source of your current draw. I have had to resort to pulling them all,(after making notes for anything I needed to remember about where they were) to get light to go out, then re-installing one by one & watching light. When it comes on nice & bright, note which fuse slot, and pull it back out and continue on, in case of more than one draw.
