Re: Battery losing all charge
Then, after you charge it and find it does hold a charge, insert between a battery cable and battery post, a test light.
The test light will glow/shine if current is being drawn, however slight of current.
If lit, pull fuses one by one to find the faulty circuit.
If a stereo amplifier has been added, might disconnect any add-on electronics one-by-one and check light.
The problem can also be the too low of recharge once started.
Typically, with external regulated alternators, 2000 rpm may produce 14 volts across battery posts. As electrical devices are turned on, more power comes fromt he battery than the alternator, hence, battery may not get recharged enough even though the alt checks out fine. Just the way it is.
If all the above is okay, you might invest in a battery tender or trickle charger and hook it up when the Camaro is sitting.
