Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

When you say dead, I'm assuming you are referring to the battery? Is it starting with a jump start?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

Has the battery been tested?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

Common causes are a bad battery or radio. I'd start by having battery load tested which you can have done at your local parts store for free. If that doesn't help remove fuse 11 and 13 from interior fuse box, if that stops battery from going dead the radio needs to be replaced. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
