Vehicle with start but only runs 20-30 seconds then dies

Asked by Aug 29, 2014 at 02:52 PM about the 1997 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLE Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

recently installed a new multi function switch, everything went fine, everything worked.  
Couple days later truck dies out of the blue.  I am thinking battery or alternator, so charge
the battery and install new alternation, no avail.  Its getting fuel and the pressure is fine.  
Next day battery dead, thinking maybe direct short but still does not explain why when
fully charged vehicle only runs for a short period.

1 Answer

multi switch - is that the blanker switch ?
