99 SUBRBAN BATTERY WON'T STAY CHARGED

1999 Chevrolet Suburban • V8 4WD Automatic •

Battery won't hold a charge when in vehicle. Is fine when disconnected. Drawing from somewhere, how can I pin point the problem?

Disconnect the positive cable and hook up a test light between the battery and cable. Pull fuses one at a time to isolate the area. But, alot of times this is the ABS unit so pull the plug on it and see if that is it. They can be rebuilt or replaced. Ther eis a place in florida that does it for under $200 I think. Or you could get one from a junkyard.
