Last night I started my 03 GMC Envoy to move it from the street into my driveway. It started strong, ran fine and my wife hasn't had any problems with it. After shutting it off and letting it sit for 30 minutes, I tried to start it again and it wouldn't start. No lights would come on and it acted as if it didn't even have a battery in it.
I then tried to jump start it with my other car and I was able to turn the lights on but I still couldn't get it started. I left the jumper cable connected for 10 minutes and then tried to start it again but it still wouldn't start. As soon as I took the cables off, the truck was completely dead again.
I then took the battery out of another car and it started but was running poorly. It seemed like it wanted to stall out. It did stall when I turned on all of the lights and then again when I turned on the A/C. I also took the "bad" battery and put it in my other car and then that car wouldn't start so the battery is indeed dead.
Would a battery die that quick? It appeared to be working fine one minute and then it appeared to be dead as a doornail one minute later.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
