Sounds like something is running your battery down at night. Have you added any new equipment to vehicle? Something is pulling ampage.

you may have an earth problem, but unlikely if did not register on diagnosis so you'll probably need a new battery or it may need conditioning( distilled water so might as well get new battery).

SOURCE: needs jump

Check the battery for charge and alternator for power (free at Autozone) It might be deposited/rusted contacts on alternator and battery to reduce the electric current to battery from altrnator so battery just draining out. Also if it is very cold overnight (less than 0 F) battery lost the cranking power.
Please kindly let me know if the information provided was usefull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

check for looser alternator belt.once you install a new battery you should drive it around for about30 minutes to insure it gets a decent charge!

How do I start my tahoe after leaving key in ignition and security feature shut off all power


Did you try jump starting the vehicle?

If you left the key on all the accessory functions where on and this will cause the battery to go dead overnight. Jump starting to see if the vehicle will start is a good way to determine if the battery did go dead. Depending on how old the battery is it may have gone bad by letting it go dead overnight. If its more than a few years old it may not be a bad idea to just replace it.

2002 Chevy Tahoe. Car wont Start, Starter will keep on trying to start even with key out.


I'd look at the starter solenoid. It also contains the switch contacts that actually connects the battery to the motor. It may be starting to stick.

Have a 01 Tahoe with new red top and fairly new alternator. It charges at about 14v. But if I leave the Tahoe set for a week, it wont start.Where do I look for a voltage leak. The Tahoe seems to be working...


Start with the basics; Is the reason the car does not start is that the battery is discharged after a week of sitting or a case that it won't start without a jump although the battery is still good. If the car just does not start after sitting then try the following; Pull the negative battery cable and let the car sit overnight. Reconnect the cable in the morning and see if it starts. If it does then you are looking for something that is pulling current from the battery. Could be lots of things; light on in the glove box or trunk, a short in a wire, etc. You can try pulling a couple of fuses each evening and in the morning, replace the fuses and see if the car will start after sitting. If it continues to discharge the battery then try another set of fuses. The day it starts after sitting then you have narrowed the electrical system that is discharging your battery. Focus on those systems

Will not start, jumped barely turn over once lights radio work when jumped.


Dead battery... Sometimes if the battery is very low then it must sit with the jumpers on for a few minutes to charge the battery. If everything worked fine after the engine started then the alternator is working ok. Check the battery terminals for corrosion and clean as necessary.
