Remove a battery terminal, Connect an Amp meter in series, should get a reading of about 0.3 of an amp, that will be the clock, for it to kill a battery overnight I would expect a reading of about 3 amps, something is staying on? Trunk light is a favourite, you can't see it with the trunk shut, remove the fuses one at a time and watch the meter, when the drain drops off, you have found the cicuit

03 silverado cluster went dead when battery went dead ,put new battery in and sill nothing ,can you help me


Do you own a professional type scan tool ? Would need to see if the instrument cluster can communicate with scan tool . That would be a priority . If the instrument cluster ,for some reason wouldn't be talking,checking power an ground for the cluster . Batteries going dead , changing batteries without a alternative power supply can cause modules to go to sleep permanently ! Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems I'am not saying that's what happen to your's . 2003 to 2006 GM had cluster problems ! The solder use in the cluster caused silver migration , instrument cluster caused a drain on the battery overnight . Watch these videos !
