The problem is that there is a short circuit or any accessory is consuming energy that you can try a test lamp will turn the power tongs place the lamp in the positive cable must be disconnected and the tip of the lamp at the terminal the battery if the light intensity lamp is lit with a power consumption because if this happens remove fuse fuse when you turn the call light is the circuit that is causing you problems. Thanks

Have installed new batteries. New Alternator. After leaving 04 duramax parked for 3 days electronics are dead. Batteries were fully charged prior to parking the truck.


There is a very good possibility that there is a short in the wiring that is causing the battery to be drained when it is off. There are a few auto parts stores that can do a complete electrical system check and they can test the battery drain when the car is off. These problems are usually caused by a faulty relay which leaves a component on when the vehicle is off. Or there can be a wire shorting. However, finding a short is often like chasing ghosts. I would recommend going to advance auto. The electrical scanner they have there can detect battery draining.

Auxiliary battery use


The extra battery is there because of the glow plugs and intake heater of the duramax. During cold weather both of these systems draw high amperage from the batteries. A single battery will function, but not as well as a pair.

Alternator


You need to verify you replaced with the correct amperage alternator, I went to AutoZone with part in hand for my 2004 2500HD Duramax and they gave me the incorrect one, had the exact problem you describe, installed the greater amperage alt and all is well for 10000+ miles now.
