GMC SAVANA BATTERY PROBLEM

2003 GMC Savana • 200,000 miles

The last two weeks I have been having problems with my head lamp circuit breaker tripping when I attempt to turn them on with my heater going. I would have to turn my head lamps on first then my heater for them both to work. Yesterday afternoon I encountered a new problem. I was driving when my airbag warning light started flashing and beeping. It lasted a few seconds and then went out and was replaced with a new dash light called security. That light stayed on the entire time and never went out. This morning I went out and started the van and with nothing on my headlamps would not turn on. It took multiple times to get them to turn on. I drove away and went to turn and my engine died. It took roughly twenty minutes before it would start. It had no problem turning over it just would not fire. I am asking for any advice on where to start.

Sincerely,

Tom

Check a battery to body ground and engne to battery as well make sure they are clean and not corroded. Also check underhoood fuse box for corrosion as they tend to do that. Try resetting our security system.
