Battery drains until dead recharged it tahoe starts and runs gauges are dead alt light is on door locks, windows, keyless entry don't work 2003 tahoe 5.3 please help


Try disconnecting your alternator. Charge the battery but leave the alternator disconnected (remove the electrical plug from the rear of the alternator).

If the battery retains its charge and can start the car (you won't cause any damage by starting the engine with the alternator disconnected) it points towards a defective alternator.

If the rectifier pack - the diodes - in the alternator burn out this can cause a battery to discharge very quickly. Sometimes, quite literally, in a couple of minutes.

If the battery still discharges with the alternator disconnected this points towards a failing battery or a drain somewhere else in the electrical system.

It may be that your door locks and windows don't work for the simple reason there's not enough power to operate them. However, as you say your gauges are dead .. this could possibly point towards a drain in the electrical system, but not necessarily so.

It becomes too easy to replace parts one after the other in the hope that a fault is cured. This is an expensive way of going about things. The best option is to pay a workshop or an auto electrician to diagnose the fault correctly. Diagnose the fault first - an auto electrician will be able to tell you within minutes if it's the battery, the alternator or a drain elsewhere.

Will a dead battery in a 2002 dodge grand caravan, affect if the car fob can open the doors?


Absolutely. If the battery is dead there will be no power to active the door locks (since the door locks are electrically powered). Charge the battery or put jumpers on it, you will see that the door locks will come back to life (if that was the issue)

Why does my car shut off after the car has been jumped started?


because either your battery is completely dead,or does not keep any power even the alternator is charging it. as the vehicle is all electronics loaded and needs quite good power to work,and your battery hesitate to help,means that everything is dead and the car dies as well. Check your battery and alternator as well

check the voltage on the battery with a volt meter, it should be around 12.6 to 13 volts, if not charge battery with a charger, after charge try to start vehicle, if the vehicle starts use your volt meter at the battery again, the voltage should be around 14 to 14.5 any lower and the battery isn't being charged and the alternator should be checked and or replaced to solve the problem..

Battery is dead if it isn't started every hour.


Make sure he didn't put the wrong alternator in there. Sounds like it's charging too much, or shorting out somewhere. Take your starter in and have it checked.
