Yup....yet another battery problem thread, but before you start flaming me....I did search and read all that I could find...just nothing quite specific enough.

The situation....2006 LGT sedan with 58,000 Km...totally stock....only electrical after market accessory is a Garmin GPS running off the cigar lighter(Disconnecting it does not affect the problem) New 550 CCA battery installed a few months ago....all terminals are clean and secure. Battery will go to DEAD in about 4-5 days if not driven.

The car has been to the dealer about this numerous times while it was still on warranty....no problem....no solution.

Battery readings across the terminals
Running at idle...............14.4V
Running at 2500 rpm........14.4 V
After shut off.................12.7 V
After off 1 hr..................12.4 V
After off 5 hrs................12.2 V
After cold overnight........12.1 V
After start and 2 km drive...12.6 V

I did the Dark Current test as outlined in TSB 07-62-07
Milli amp draw down fluctuates between 1 mA and 18 mA...never higher and no where near the suggested max of 150 mA

Love to hear from anyone on here with any serious ideas about his problem.
