replace battery with Delco best.... f=drains down in about 24 hrs ..? maybe ECM?


You need to do a parasitic battery drain test. Look it up on the web.


Seems like the StarLink (Telematics) System may be at the core of many of these problems : Quick check by pulling Under-the-Hood Fuse-Block Fuse #9 "DCM" (in most cars : Check your Fuse List inside the top of the Fuse Cover). Run a Not-Running Current Draw Test from the Fuse Position for verification......
