Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
We thought our battery went bad so we changed the battery the very next day the battery was dead again. So we replaced the alternator. The car ran ok for a day. Although the door lock remote would not work. Two days after the new battery and the alternator, the car is completely dead. When the key is turned no noise at all. Help, does anyone have any suggestions on what to try next.
You have something thats staying on with power when you shut the car off,first check all lights glove apartment,underhood,in trunk ,just because ther closed doesnt mean the light is off,check your car at night it might help to see the lights,if not another way is to take a multi meter to the battery and while some holds the meter pull out fuses in your fus box one at a time to see when the meter makes a change,this will help you to narrow down whats staying on and draining the power from the battery,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

LOL I had this very same problem! what a dummy i felt when after a few days of this i dropped down my back seats and noticed that my trunk light was on without the lid being open. as a fast fix cause i was heading away from home and didn't have time to fix it then. I took a ball point pen and smashed the dulb cause it was too hot to take out. problem fixed and never had a dead batt again! still havn't fixed the light thou.....
