2005 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 60000 miles
My battery keeps going down very quickly. I tested the alternator and it is working fine under load. Replaced battery with brand new fully charged battery. Car started right up. Drove car on highway for about 20 miles. The next day the battery is completely dead. Can't even open power locks. Jump start the car with no problems. Drive car and all accessories and lights are working. Stop car. Battery completely dead and can't even turn on dome light immediately after turning off engine. Could it be the alternator even though it load tested fine? Would I still be able to drive with all lights and accessories working if the battery is dead and the alternator no good. I am perplexed. What could this be? Thanks.
have the same problem?
