Question about GMC 1995-1997 Yukon Ignition Starter Alarm Switch
Have had it to the auto electric folks twice, looked at tons of forums, stil can'y find the drain that seems only to occur when I turn my back for a week or so. Have made sure that the lights go off, glove box light switch was on once, so I added material to the shutoff post to make sure it went off when closed. The vehicle has remote start............once last summer I used the remote start, and when I tried to stop the vehicle, it would not die, even when I removed the keys completely. I had to remove the starter or fuel pump relay to kill the engine, and then replace it. I think that the battery drain problem happened following this event, but am not real sure. Last winter when the remote stert was used when the car was fully warm, the starter motor would keep turning after the engine started, and would run for about 15 seconds before finally stopping. Do I need a new starter, new fuel pump relay, NEW TRUCK...!!!
Any help greatly appreciated, I have killed 4 batteries and noe have to keep a charger on it all the time..........
lets not just guess at this problem lets do some testing like the pro's
you will need a test light
you will need to have a fully charged battery
you need to disconnect the battery negitive
and use your test light to connect the neg cable to the batt.
now if you have a drain on your battery your test light will light.
now with this test light on we need to find the circuit that is causing your drain.
what i do first is to pull fuses untill the light goes off.
and then you know the circuit with the problem
once you know what curcuit is the problem let us know and we can help you further.
and remember a good mechanic will find the problem and replace the problem part
NOT replace parts hoping to fix the problem.
that is why we are here to help.
good luck and let me know how this works for you.
