Answers :

You have something draining the battery,check for any lights that might be staying on,interior light,stop light under the hood light(if any),glove box light trunk light, if you have a multimeter with amp testing capability or an amp meter you can check where the drain is by removing each fuse & put the probes on each side the terminals until you find a drainage,that way you might be able to find out what is draining the power & rectify it......hope this helps......cheers

When we park our 2004 Hummer H2 in the driveway next to the house, the battery drains over a few days. We have to keep it plugged in all the time to ensure it will start. BUT, if we park it away from the house, it doesn't seem to be a problem. The dealer said that all our wi-fi equipment in the house is to blame. That's what the problem is. I just have a hard time believing that everyone who owns an H2 has figured this out and is charging their battery every night. Any truth to this? Thanks, Lee
