Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

I have driven my 2006 equinox all day until about a half hour ago. I came home to pick up some paint supplies and put everything in the car and suddenly the battery is dead. NO WARNING at all.

Chances are that either one of the battery terminals is loose or corroded, or the alternator isn't charging and you "ran out of battery" If that was the case though, you should have had an indicator light on the dash. Very rare, but I have also seen a battery just flat out die with no warning. (actually happened to me once)
If I had to guess at which has happened, I'd go with the dirty terminals. 99% of the time that is the problem.

Check your battery terminals. Take the cables off you battery and clean with a mild solution of baking soda and water. Also check the ground cable and make sure it is attached securely. I had a truck that did the same thing and it was a corrosion problem.

Chevrolet Equinox Brake Light Flashing

If it is an amber light that says " anti lock" You will be safe, you just wont have anti lock brakes. The car may have traction controll. If so, look in the manual to be sure what light is on. As a general rule amber lights are warnings and red lights means stop. If the light stays on you will have to go to the dealer to have the code read.
