There is a detailed write-up here: http://vatspasskey.com . I have a 94 Park Avenue and this was the only way to save it. Talked with that guy a lot and I remember he said tons of Camaro's were on his list.

The battery wont hold a charge. the battery is completly dead after a very short period of time


Does the battery go dead while sitting or while driving? You may have a draw problem where something is draining the battery while parked, or you may have a charging problem, or you may have a bad battery, depending on how it goes dead.

What are possible causes for battery drains when parked for extended periods?


Most cars now have many modules that incorporate "memory" systems that require a constant low voltage supply, including your radio. Most batteries will hold enough charge to last a month without going completely dead. Not sure what you consider "extended period".
If storing for more than a month, you could either put a 2 amp "battery tender" on it or disconnect the battery (but you need to know how to re-arm the security system so when re-connected it will start).

If the battery is going dead in a short time (two weeks or less) have the battery load tested after getting it fully charged. It may be good enough for day to day use but if it's not in really good condition it will get low quickly.
If you have a drain that's unusual, that will require going through the entire electrical system fuse by fuse 'till you find the drain source. At this point it can be so many things that commenting is foolish as testing is the only way to verify anything.

I parked the 2005 STS for few months. It won't start now even with a jumping cable. What can I do to fix the battery that has drained ?


charge the battery with a charger. newer vehicles with security systems will drain batteries when the vehicle has not been used for extended periods of time especially in cold weather.

2005 GMC Envoy key is stuck in accessory position in the ignition with dead battery and transmission stuck in park. Will replacing battery help or is it security system lock down? If it is the security...


Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.

Help! I have 98 Saturn SL2 that was live one minute dead the next


Sounds exactly like my 1999 SL2 which had "burning and arching" in the fuse box. Car one day be fine the next I'd take it to the store, come back in 10 minutes and wouldn't start, no radio, no power windows, no keyless entry remote, no rear defrost and even locking doors from inside power buttons it sounded odd. This fixed the problem by replacing the fuse box.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

2005 suburban,I had the tires rotated and the battery died twice


Depends on how long he was trying to program the TPMS. With the engine not running and the ignition keys on, the day time running lights are on and the head lights are draining the battery. Next time your going to have the ignition keys on for a long period of time with out the engine running, set your parking brakes. Setting your parking brakes will keep your Day time running lights from coming on.
