tm8272 Posted December 9, 2010 Report Share Posted December 9, 2010 Hello everyone, I got a call from the Caddy dealer today that was supposed to check out what keeps draining my battery. Had them check starter if that is going bad. The verdict, they said that the battery will not hold a charge! Car does have a small 9 amp or mili amp drain that they say is normal?? I dont have a clue about electrical and not sure if this is true? My battery is about a month old. I bought it at Pepboys and it is 850 cranking amps. I had them check it before I left the store with it. Does this sound right?? The dealer said to take it back and swap it out or see if they have an upgrade. I called Pepboys and they said unless our machine tests show it is bad battery, we will not swop it out. The only upgrade they had was Bosch battery with same Cranking amps. I called Sears and asked about there Diehard Gold battery which I will have to buy out of pocket which I dont mind to get a good quality battery. Just wanted to ask if anyone thinks this sounds right?? I'm having the dealer align the car today since steering column was turned after new engine was installed. They said if they have a problem with it or find something off they will call me. I also have "service ride control on" since I picked car up from engine shop. So I thought that was electrical issue related. The dealer did say it could be an open in one of the struts or short but did not check that. Before I go buy another battery let me know. The dealer is charging me 95 to check the drain and this is all they come up with. Kind of odd I think. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
