Check your alternator, diode could be bad Hello I am not a mechanic but had a similar problem with my f-150 -- had a lot of work done on it - computer replaced, new alternator, new battery. Finally I took it to a stereo place thinking that my alarm might be draining it. The master mind at that place located 2 fuse problems in under 30 mins -- one for a battery saver option on my truck and the other for the dome light. That was only $50 compared to the $800 I had already spent to not find the problem - so that might be something you want to try before wasting a lot of money like i did. good luck

What is killing the battery on a 97 Chevy Tahoe It is brand ne It will not crank in the mornings unless battery is charged?

Bad alternator? May have short, will still charge, but drains the battery when sitting. Just as a test, take one of the battery cables off at night and see if the battery stays charged. Might be bad battery even though new. Hood light that's not shuting off? Brake switch not shutting off? Have you checked the altermator to make sure it's charging 14 amps. May be weak and only charging enough to keep the truck running with nothing left to charge the battery. Out of ideas
