Did the original battery die? Did you carry out any checks first like putting a meter across the battery to see if it was being charged? It should read 14.5v on a fast idle. Will it start when jumped with cables? Does the anti-theft need a reset procedure when the battery is changed? Have you checked the ground cable to engine connections for a good clean fit?

My escalade flashed a warning light to reduce the engine power it then shut down and wouldnt start


Your Escalade has put itself into "limp home mode", it is protecting you from destroying the engine or transmission. I would take it to autozone or Pepboys let them scan it for a stored code....it could be several different things.

Check to be sure the new battery is a good new one, they set on the shelves for some time ya know. Then make sure it goes in the correct direction.Then refer to your owners manual if it needs reprogrammed.

I have a 2003 escalade that has a dead battery after 2 days of sitting. Once I jump start it it will be fine as long as I start it everyday, but once it sits the battery will die again. What can I do???


First have the battery tested with a load tester and also (most places will do both for free hoping to sell a battery etc) the charging system tested.

Either battery, charging system are bad or you have a drain of the battery somewhere.

A authorized dealer would be a smart move.

Keep charging battery an it dies


Sorry to say that it sounds like one of the cells in your battery has 'died'. It will show a full charge when sat on the bench but as soon as you put a heavy load (like the starter motor) on it it won't want to know. Only solution is a new battery.

03 escalade won't start or turn over


Do you have power?
battery might be drained cause your alternator is not charging anymore, 2003, seems about time for a new alternator, those vehicles consume lots of power cause pretty much everything is electric, lots of motors and servos, so they depend a lot on a good power source from the battery. If alternator doesnt charge it, no power...

have power system checked.

Good luck.

My 2003 escalade died while on the highway now won't start battery good! But turn the key and nothing happens?


Hello<I am Ron.Be sure the battery is good by checking,or having it checked.Check the cca,and load test.If this checks out,then proceed to look for bad terminal connections and then either a burned out fusible link,or large maxie fuse.Fusible links look like a wire,but will pull apart like taffy if the are burned out.Look near a positive wire junction,most likely near battery.The fusible link will be attached there.Be sure if the battery checks bad,to check the alternator,or have it checked.If I can help,let me know.>>roniecon@gmail.com

Dies with no warning after it warms up


if the computer is located in the engine compartment it could be overheating. the solution to the computer overheating is a new computer. expensive. I have seen this happen on other vehicles as well.
