2001 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Automatic
I have an electrical device burning smell and some smoke, but I can't find where it is coming from. My battery was tested and recharged (the condition was very good) and after trying to start my car, the battery acts as it it is drained. I tried using another vehicle to jump start it and it won't start. I tried hooking a battery with jumper cables to start it and the other new battery acted as if it was drained. The lights worked and everything electrical worked before I attempted to start the engine. Because I couldn't start it, I could not get an output voltage reading from the alternator.
