#30 of 252 2004 Chevy Suburban battery drained to zero
Jan 12, 2011 (6:46 pm)
My 2004 Chevy Suburban has been draining the battery to dead overnight if I leave it unstarted for about 12 hours. Have jump started successfully. Replaced battery with brand new one. It too went completely dead overnight. Suspect an electrical short so I dropped it off at the Chevy dealer who has had it now for 3 days. When I get it back, I will post here what they found out. I just hope it's not something stupid like a loose wire in the door panel or something. I have only 89000 miles and this headache pops up? Other problems I've had with this Suburban is a faulty dashboard instrument cluster panel which had to be completely replaced. Also an electric swing-door under the dash for the ventilation ducts failed so I had no heater !!! That was a $400.00 repair. Also the anti-sway has intermittent grinding noise at front left wheel well during curvy roads and cold weather. I've had to push the button on the dash to bypass it which temporarily cures the problem. Still I love my Suburban for its size, trailer hauling, and can seat 9 passengers.

Well I got my Suburban back. The Chevrolet Dealer said they tried but ultimately, no luck at all finding the electrical short. However, they jiggled some wire under the hood, said their meter spiked for a second. And the battery did not go dead anymore for the 4 days they had the truck. They were honest and did not charge me too much for the exploratory repairs.

Cormier Chevrolet could not find or fix the problem. This cost me 3 days of car rental plus their diagnosis labor charge. I took my Suburban to a local auto repair shop and within 1 day they determined that I had a defective battery, even though it was only 3 weeks old. I switched to a different brand of battery and the problem was fixed !!! My original battery was a Bosch which was only 1 year old when the problem started. I replaced this battery with the exact same Bosch brand and model. That's when the new one only held for 3 weeks... I switched to Delta, no more problems. I'll never buy another Bosch battery!

Have you found a solution to this problem? Has your vehicle been fixed? I just started having the same issue on my 07 Tahoe

I don't know that it is fixed...i don't use it as I did because I don't want to risk it. However, my dealer did "turn off" a lot I codes that MAY have been the problem. This vehicle has had a TON of issues.
