    Hi all, surfing the web for help and came across this site. Got an 04 burb. Heres my problem, when you leave the key on aux for even like five min, the car will not start, goes completely dead and needs a jump start, which is hard to due by the way. I guessing its not the battery, even though im gonna have it looked at, if i turn the car off completely, it'll start right up. but if its off and the tvs are on for like a minute, its dead. any ideas before i take it to the e shop. The other morning it it didnt start either, im guessing cause it was to cold? Any ideas or suggestion greatly appreciated, thanks again

    Welcome to the site! Sure sounds like a battery issue. When it gets colder, you will notice more battery problems as well indicating you need to buy a new battery or take your truck to an aouto parts store that will do a free charging system check.

    Have your cca ( cold cranking amps ) check on the battery. If that is too low it will be hard to start. Leaving the tv, dvd on will drain it some and prob. enough to were you have to jump to start your burban.. Let us know if you get the battery check. Also make sure your battery cables are tight and cleaned.
