Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
Hi there. It appears that some electrical devise on your vehicle which is draining the battery. As a quick check, you should check absolutely every interior light is going off – the cabin lights and if fitted the following lights – luggage/boot light, glove box light, under-the-hood lights. I you are sure none of these have been accidentally left on you then need to have someone check just how many amps are being drained from the battery – this will give an indication of the ‘load’ that’s draining the battery and thus the offending/likely electrical circuit. Of course, it might also be the battery that is at fault, in that there is an internal short circuit within the battery. If you are able to look into each cell of the battery, if you see the water bubbling within one particular cell, then it probably indicates that there is a short in the battery and that it needs replaced. Again, have the Dealer or Fast Fit Center undertake a battery discharge test, this will quickly identify whether your battery is performing properly. Hope this helps, Scottech.
