Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

My 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo won't start if it sits idle for two or three days. I had it in the shop for a week and they couldn't find the cause. He said he thinks it's the radio draining the battery. It worked fine for a month, but then I didn't drive it for three days and it wouldn't start again. I have a new battery. Any ideas ?

Something is draining the battery. Remove the positive terminal on the battery, then touch it back on it. If it arcs back then you have a constant draw. Try removing fuses one by one until you don't get an arc. Then at least you now know what is drawing the battery down. That is the component that you have a problem with. ( You will always get a slight draw from the radio because of the memory) If it is a heavy arc, then you have something wrong with the radio.

A few different thing's could cause that , IAC - idle air control valve , vacuum leak , engine electronics , (sensor's) Would need to do testing to say for sure ! Know how to do basic engine testing ? Your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to find an fix this problem ! Wouldn't trust part's store's , they just want to sell you parts !

My 03 chevy monte carlo has a po102 code and I know the mass flow sensor connector is bad but will this cause the battery to drain for no reason? I hear a clicking noise coming from the gove compartment...


If you have a light in the glove compartment that might be staying on. I would start pulling fuses one at a time until the clicking stops. Pull a fuse, still clicking, put it back and pull another. Repeat until you find the circuit causing the problem. That will narrow down where you need to look.
