I have a 2004 chevy Tahoe 4x4 and the problems never end. It drains batteries, and now I park it with the negative terminal disconnected so it starts every time. I don't drive it often because it's so unreliable and I have replaced the battery 3 times now. Thought I had a solution to keep it running by disconnecting the battery so I didn't have to boost it every time and now when I drive it, the battery gauge will fluctuate around the 14 mark and it will stall. It has started up after it stalls.

I have a 99 Honda Accord. The lights and horns sometimes automatically activate and will continue until the battery is drained. This can occur at anytime during the day or night. Thinking that my remote control panic was the problem, I took out the remote control battery and only use a key now. The problem still occurred. Every time I took the car to the Honda service department, they car behaved and they couldn't find the problem. Now whenever I am not driving, I manually disconnect the car bat

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

Hi I just bought a Volvo 850 turbo with 110,000 miles on it. The car has two main problems but I am mostly worried about the ignition switch. The previous owner said he would unplug the battery every night because the car had a slow drain on the battery and it wouldn't start in the morning. He said he wasn't sure what it was but I'm fairly confident the problem is in the ignition switch. When I turn the car off after it's been on the radio, lights, and everything else stays on. I can still

I have a 99 chevy silverado 4x4, 5.3L and the parking lights in the front and rear say on. They just came on one night, I went to start my truck and it was dead. Even if the key is pulled they stay on. The only way to get them to turn off is to unhook the battery cable.. I took the light switch out and they still stay on. I think the lights work off of ground, so do I have a wire that is grounded out, or something else??
