Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
My tahoe for some reason will not hold a charge. When i get a jump start, the volt meter on the dash goes up to about 15 then after about 10 min drops down to 14 and will stay there for around 20 min. then it drops just below the 14 mark. after i drive it for 30-45 min i shut it off and the battery is almost dead and doesent have enough charge to start the vehicle again. i have replaced the battery and had the alternator checked by autozone, and they said that when the truck is off there is a drain on the battery. according to the volt meter the battery stays at about 9.5 volts after the vehicle is shut off.
Sounds like you have a bare wire somewhere that is touching metal and grounding out. Probably a starter cable. Try unhooking the battery, check the voltage of the battery, then hook the cable back up, watching for sparks from the cable. After you get it hooked back up, check the voltage again. If you see a small spark, it is normal. If you see a big spark, you have a wire that is touching something it is not supposed to.
