Question type: Maintenance & Repair

dealership said cellphone charger was drawing to much 7map. they fully charged battery and i took car home. today i put a new cellphone charger in the power outlet and it drained the battery???? now my backup camera is shutting off by its self when backing up. the car has started again but i can tell the battery is low because it is hard to turn over. Is there an electrical issue with the terrains that gmc is hiding and wont admit to because of the scare of recall

There must be some short somewhere or some other electrical issue. It is possible that battery is faulty however.

Fully charge the battery then have it load tested. Your battery may be worn out. Typically the original battery is only designed to last 3 years. So if your Terrain was made late in 2013 you may be due for a new battery. A cell phone charger should not kill the battery. When Hurricane Sandy hit and I was without power I charged my phone on a regular basis for 3 days without the car running and it didn't effect my battery. HTH. -Jim


thanks i will try another dealer about the battery.
