Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

Open Question

2005 Chev Equinox battery keeps dying because the radio clock keeps turning on and off when the car is not running. I have installed a new battery and I pulled the fuse for the radio and the battery is still staying charged now. Is this a easy fix or do I need a new radio in the vehicle?

SOURCE: dash light do not come on but lights do for drl on 2005 chev equinox

DRL (Daytime Running Lights) will come on any time you start your car.
The dash lights do not come on, unless your headlights turn on. Either by a daylight sensor or if you manually turn them on by the switch.
So even though your headlights are on with the DRL, if you notice the tail lights do not come on (just like the dash lights don't).

To test if your dash lights do work, turn your headlight switch on. You should the the tail lights and dash lights come on.

SOURCE: car battery problem

The alternator test will likely indicate a charging problem from the alternator that is not keeping the battery charged up.
Regardless of the alternator test, it would be best to do an electrical draw test to determine whether there is an excess drain on the battery. This can be done with an ammeter between the positive terminal and the positive battery post. This test is done with key off, all accessories off, no lights on, etc. There will be a small draw on the battery in all newer vehicles, but it should be in the order of up to 50 milliamps. If you are getting more than 200 milliamps of current draw then there is a problem with an electrical system that will drain the battery over a period of days or weeks. Once you know this is true, the electrical systems can be methodically tested.

I am sorry, but the factory default radio in all 2005 cobalt models does not have auxiliary audio input jacks anywhere. I wish they did.

Thanks for using the fixya forums!

My vehicle stopped running and had to have towed. Put in new battery now wont start. Windows have now stopped working as has the radio. Tried to turn key today to roll up windows and key don't work.


Start from scratch...remove post battery posts...inspect...clean...reconnect...as you connect the positive (red) side post you should see a small spark...If not, this battery may be defective...check charge level...the Equinox battery is under a cover, and all connections need to be inspected...Hope this helps. Going back to the first symptom...your car stopped running? This could be the alternator that is defective, and your car will die as the battery runs down...

2005 chevy equinox changed battery and alternator and still drains battery the next day or two


First are you sure the alternator is charging the battery ?
If it is, someone will need to pull fuses and disconnect major circuits until you find the drain. It could be a simple relay, or a short to ground in the harness somewhere.

2010 Equinox has a mesage "transport mode on" & the battery indicator is on. What is the problem?


This is the mode that vehicles are shipped in so that the batteries dont die....It is easy to correct...All you need to do is turn the key to the on position and keep holding it as forward as possible for over 15 seconds...

A message will come up "Transport Mode Off". The battery light will go off and your clock will operate properly.

Thats the trick and works on 2010 Camaro, Equinox, Traverse, Lacross and other vehicles.

2007 Honda Accord--battery died now radio and clock don't work


Hi. Jumping the battery when the radio is turned on will often cause a problem. I would check the fuses for the radio first as one of them may have blown. Regarding the clock it is blinking and needs to be reset.

Since this is a relatively new car I recommend going to a book store and purchasing the service manual for Honda which includes the 2007 models. This will you how to reset the clock. Then keep the manual in the glove compartment for all future reference.

Good luck.

2007 Equinox, turns over then dies


A vehicle will not stay running unless it has a good ground field and if the battery has died. You may not be able to be able get it to run. Try a jump. If it starts and runs, un-hook the ground and see if it stays running. Good luck.
