Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

I have a 2001 chevy blazer that has a short that causes the battery to go dead within 8 hours of sitting. If I pull the 50 amp "RAP" fuse & the 15 amp Radio fuse it will not drain the battery. What do you suggest is my best course of action? My E-Mail is fan4eagles@yahoo.com Thanks Dave

I had my brake shoes replaced from a dealer. I drove the car home and let it sit for a week. When I tried to start it the battery was completely drained. I know I have a short to ground or something...


ok first off if you go from neg terminal to batt terminal you will get 12 volt because you are completing the circuit, you need to do an ohms drop not a voltage drop to see where you are at first

Whats pulling the battery down and causing my 2002 blazer not to turn over


Is the battery new? Does it start fine until it sits overnight? Have you checked the alternator? Does the battery have sufficient cold cranking amps,dead cell? Is an interior light staying on, glove box light? Do you have an aftermarket stereo with an amp?

Turn key...nothing.....radio...ac....lights work....is it my starter?


If there is nothing, you probably have a dead battery-nothing else would cause no crank/lights or accessories unless it was a bad connection at your battery terminals. charge the battery with a battery charger ) a 2 amp charger would take a couple of days, 10 amp about 8 to 10 hours and a 50 amp about 3 hours, but charging slowly is better for the battery)- If you have a voltage meter, chances are your battery is well below 12 volts, and as it sits it should recover somewhat, but probably you will still need to at least charge it. Conventional batteries do not do well with full discharges and it can 'kill' even a fairly new battery in short order, so prepare for the possiblilty that you need to replace it.

I had a wire running from my amp to the fuse box


You have obviously damaged neighboring wiring in the fuse panel. The reason the dash lights and radio is pulsing is because of feedback.

Here we go. Battery is dieing, had the battery checked it's good, had the alternator checked it's good, had the starter checked he said the solenoid bad, replaced starter. Still have the problem. Checked...


RAP stands for Retained Accessory Power. It is the circuit responsible for powering accessories when the key is off. Sounds like something is staying on that shouldn't. Hard to say what though with the information here. if this started happening right after you put in the new radio i would check into that. otherwise start checking accessories like power mirrors,seats, locks and see it something is staying on that shouldnt. i good one to check would be the glove box light or the light under the hood. you can unplug them and then test your draw to see if thats where is was.

Something that is drawing to cause battery to go dead


Tell him to use his test light between + battery connection & battery post +, and start pulling fuses one by one. When you find the right fused circuit causing the drain, light will dim or go out. Don't forget, radio has a small constant draw for memory.

No spark when trying to start the engine on 98 chevy blazer


Check for dead battery. Test wipers, radio, headlights and heater fan. If all work normally, battery is probably charged and you may have bad starter or alternator ....

Good luck...
