Seeing multiple reports of the same issue make me think it is not unique to my vehicle. The back right door was replaced due to unrepairable parts. I did do this and got sparks. Install the male end of the J 38758 to the battery ground terminal. Since purchasing the vehicle in may of 2004, I had to replace the speedometer.
Often they are controlled by a thermostat, and will run for a few minutes after you shut off the engine, but it should shut off within about five minutes. If I hadn't noticed the third brake light staying on. They disconnected the battery for a week and it held its charge with no problem, but when hooked up, it lasts only a day or so. I've got an 07 Suburban thats been having electrical issues on and off in the two years i've owned it. The battery has leaked so badly that parts under the area where the battery sits had to be replaced. However, I was told by the dealership that this battery does not have a warranty since it was replaced under warranty.
I was driving 50 mph and when I looked at the speedometer, the gauge went up to 120 mph and even though I turned the engine off the gauge is still at 120 mph. The vehicle was towed to a Chevrolet dealer and is currently being repaired. The dealer currently has the truck trying to diagnose the problem. Its been to the dealer and had the battery and alternator both replaced, but now its out of warranty. Even the body computer could do it. I drove it about 25 miles and left it sit for a 2 hour appointment. We had to replace a dead battery in July 2011 and following that the radio stopped keeping time when the vehicle was turned off.
This may contribute to draining the battery, which could result in a low battery state of charge and difficulty cranking the engine. The isolator system is smart in that it only charges one battery at a time so recovery is fast due to no voltage drops you find with other isolator systems. I have been doing alot of reading and some folk say this could be an ignition switch problem. The time frame can vary from 4 days to three weeks but it always drains the battery when it sits for any lenghty period of time. A small battery draw, which takes several days to take the battery to a low state of charge or below the level required to start the engine, may be a bulb or module staying on. It has done this on four separate occasions since late July. This avoids damaging the digital multimeter due to accidental overloading, such as a door being opened to change a fuse.
I'm losing my mind and cant afford to pay for maybe. In certain cases this requires a factory scan tool. I hope that no one dies as a result of this defect. Today's cars and trucks are full of electronics that can cause a small drain at random times. I had the battery tested 3 times by 2 different stores once off the vehicle and twice on , and the alternator tested 3 times by 3 different stores once on the vehicle and twice off. I had the battery load tested, and i removed the alternator and had it tested. The first battery did fail when cold starting began to crank slow.
In most situations a battery in a good state of charge cannot be drained within minutes unless a short condition or heavy load is placed on the electrical system. Vehicle equipped with abs which was not the problem. I had to have the vehicle jumpstarted using a motor club service to get home after sitting in the cold parking lot for about 1. This has happened on three occasions. Lastly, to check engine codes would anyone have a recommendation on a good meter? What I found was that the parasitic load was not 92 milliamps but more than an amp! Since then I have had to jump start the vehicle every morning. I have pulled the battery and alternator.
Wait 15 minutes for most vehicles. Is the vehicle used for snow plowing or contractor use? The problem seems to be more prevalent in cold weather. Luckily, we were not hit. Same problem as before, car goes dead. It's included for free with your subscription to their roadside program. Was just out of 36-month basic warranty but shop replaced battery with dead cell and reprogrammed module at no charge as I had paperwork showing that I had looked into problem before warranty expired.
Original battery was replaced last year but the problem persists. On to the next adventure. Initial failure resulted in batery acid spilling on inner fender and brake lines. Since then every month same and the dealer can not find the problem. Although this problem was resolved, the oil consumption in the vehicle is still a problem.
