Thread: Battery drain

  1. #1

    Default Battery drain

    I have a 2006 chevy 2500HD and have a battery drain of 1.2 amps If I don't drive the truck for a few day the battery goes dead. I have pulled all the fuse and unhooked the alternator and electric trailor brake control , but no help. Anybody have any suggestions? Please

    I looked at other post on this problem and will disconect the starter to see if the drain is there. Great site with good info.

    Looks like you've started to cover all the normal bases. Hopefully checking the starter leads to something.
