If the battery is really bad a jump start will sometimes not work. Can you remove the battery and take it to the parts store to be tested?

I bought a new battery and put it in to no avail. It started and I drove it around the block. Then my wife went back out later to go some where. She tried to unlock the door with the key fob and it didn't work so she unlocked it with the key. Put the key in the ignition and it is stuck again in the ignition, no power to anything.
Chevy Mechanic: Neal, Chevy Mechanic replied 6 years ago
Then you must have a bad short that is killing the battery. Remove the positive and negative cables from the battery. Put an Ohm-meter across the positive and negative cable. If your reading is close to 0 Ohms then you have a direct short. Of course then the trick is tracking it down.

do you think it could be the electronic control module?
Chevy Mechanic: Neal, Chevy Mechanic replied 6 years ago
The module would not normally drain the battery which is what seems to be happening.
