2000 Olds Bravada: electrical problem..dashboard lights come..driven

Customer Question

I have an electrical problem in a 2000 Olds Bravada. The dashboard lights come on frequently. The battery goes dead in 7 to 10 days whether the car is driven or not. I have had at least three shops tell me that my charging system is working just fine. I have had this dashboard problem for five years but the battery going dead problem is getting worse as the months go by. I am getting to be an expert at switching batteries. Winter is coming soon here in Ohio and I don't look forward to having to go out in the cold to change batteries. Usually the dashboard lights come on when I engage the safety belt and I can get them to go off by operating the toggle switch for the power seat (that is not working). Sometimes when I hit a bump the lights come on. There are other electrical accessories that are not working. Any help? Thanks, AL

Did you still need help?

Do the batteries die when the engine is running or when the vehicle is sitting overnight?

amedee :

Are you saying that the headlights do not work at times?
