My 2008 duramax will not hit a lick while trying to start it, just all of a sudden. Never had any issues leading up to this. Any ideas where I can start?

Hi there, What did you find with the batteries?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Dont have a load tester. I am gonna hook my battery charger with 200 amp boost and see if that makes a difference.... any other way to check?
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 1 year ago.

Even the charger with a Boost function may not. Reason being is a internal short in the battery can drain away any and all boost attempts. The second option is to remove the batteries and have a part store test them.

There is one more option as well. There may have been a recall for security system programming.
