2007 Chevy Suburban is dying while it sits. Battery and Alternator test out fine. What can I do to fix it?

Asked by Sep 08, 2015 at 09:14 AM about the 2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT1 1500 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2007 Chevy Suburban will die while it sits overnight or while I am at work.  I
have taken it in and the battery always tests out fine and the alternator tests
out fine.  I got tired of having it jumped, so I bought a charger battery that I
keep in the car with me at all times.  For the last two months, I have had to
jump start it almost 1 time a day, on average.  Sometimes more, sometimes
less.  What is wrong?  What can I do to fix it without spending a bunch of
money for them to tell me they don't know?

You have a draw in your electrical system, check and make sure all of your interior lights, glove box lights, trunk light is shutting off. You should take it to a mechanic if your not familiar with how to check for a draw.
