It`s too cold to be out there doing a through diagnostic so I figured maybe you could tell me what to check first.
it`s a 1999 suburban, when the key is turned to the run position the daytime headlights come on and all the dash lights come on like they are supposed to.
after a few seconds all the dash lights go off like they are suppose to, except for 3 lights. the daytime headlight indicator stays on like it is suppose to and 2 other lights stay on.
one is the check gauges light and the other is the battery light.
when I turn the key nothing happens no clicking, no cranking and all the interior lights and the daytime headlights dim and go off but the check gauges light and the battery light stay on.
so, i`m assuming the battery is no good. I checked the battery with a volt meter and it has 13 volts.
the battery was in the vehicle when i bought it last year but i dont think it`s the right size battery for the suburban but it has worked.
s a group size 75 battery with 600 CCA I think its suppose to have a group size 78 battery, not sure how many CCA`s it should have.
so, do you think it won
t start because the battery finally died? it has enough volts still but maybe it doesnt have enough amps anymore?
what size battery should be in a 1999 suburban LT?
