For any short in an automotive electrical system there is a simple way to both find and correct this,

you will need:

a charged battery
a fuse puller
a test light
a buddy is good to have around too.


first verify that there is nothing turned on inside the car including the cig lighter, and any aftermarket alarms or audio stuff... then proceed:

with a known charged battery in the car you open the hood and you take the negative side battery cable off of the battery.

then you take your standard test light and make a bridge between the cable end you just took off the battery and the battery negative post, your test light should NOT light up unless you have a short!

if that light turns on when you do this you then access the fuse block and one at a time remove the fuses noting if the light turns out -make sure the car doors are shut and that there is NO engine light that comes on when you open the hood, so you don't chase your tail..-

keep checking one fuse at a time and ONE OF THEM when removed WILL cause the test light to turn off, NOW YOU KNOW what circuit the short is in. DONT replace the fuse but take note of what the label on the fuse block says goes to that fuse..

you most likely will be able to run the car without that fuse in, as long as its not a primary power circuit like brake lights or fuel pump etc.

you can get specific help MUCH easier now that you KNOW where the issue is and no one has to diagnose the problem, just repair the bad wire. thats what the pro's do, ... put your battery back in and note that it no longer goes flat overnight.

rock on and fix it yourself! -Eddie

Battery keeps going dead


Does it go dead after sitting for a few hours? Once started and driven for several miles will it restart if the engine is shutoff? If the battery goes dead only after sitting for a while with the engine off, you probably have a bulb or some accessory that is draining the battery.

If i keep the negitive connecter on the battery it will go dead in a hour there is not a wire hooked up on the alternator but i dont know where it might go?


Even with the wire removed, are you saying it goes dead while driving or just sitting . if it goes dead wile driving then the alternator may not be charging the battery as you drive but if it goes dead while the car sits then there is a draw some where.
if you sent me the year make and model with the engine size and also let me know when it goes dead in 1 hour, while driving or car just sitting and i will help you solve the problem. good day

I have a 2007 chevy impala when I try to use the remote start does not start and after that if I use the key it acts like the batterys dead and I have to jump it but if I use the key only it starts fine...


Is this a factory option remote start or after market?
If after market, the passkey bypass module may be malfunctioning which, after a few attempt at starting the car, will cause the car to go into tamper mode and prevent starting via remote start or key for a few minutes (10 minutes to an hour)

Battery on 2007 chevy impala died last week


Take it back to the place where you bought it and have them test it. Not all 'new' batteries are perfect. Many can be defective from the factory or damaged during shipping etc.

2007 yukon xl battery dead recharged battery will not start no security light no gages work when you turn the key on. try to start the engine nothing happen like the security system shut down. can you...


We had the same issue with our 2007 Yukon Denali XL. Died on us twice after sitting for short periods of time; once we watched a DVD with the engine off and battery died within 10 minutes. The dealership kept it overnight to troubleshoot why the battery died so quickly. They said the radio was "pulling" too much from the battery. (They supposably fixed it) But again a few days later the battery died again after sitting overnight. We brought it back to the dealership and they brought in a GMC "expert" to replace the entire DVD/CD/Navigation system. They also replaced our battery with a much larger battery, similar to the ones that GMC puts in there diesel trucks. They had our Denali for 5 days, but it appears to be fixed now.
Getting it fixed correctly wasn't without headaches, but it was all covered under warranty, including the battery. And they are updating the nav w/ the new edition disc as well for no charge.

Battery won't stay charged


Yes....take your battery in for testing....and if you can, take the alternator as well. It is one or the other.
