Cold Weather Battery Drain

5

Asked by Dec 09, 2013 at 05:37 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For the second year in a row I have had trouble with the Battery in my 2012 Silverado 1500 which I drive for work.  The first cold snap of the season and the battery completely dies and will not even start on a jump.  Last year we replaced the battery but honestly they should last longer.  Could there be something not right within the pickup itself?

Possible there is a drain in the system. Do you drive the truck often or does it sit a lot?

It gets driven alot during the spring, summer, and fall but sits alot during the winter.
