: Rough Idle / Stalls After Battery Drained

10-17-10, 08:56 AM
Hello All,

03' Escalade taken to detail shop 2 days ago and they let the battery drain completely. As I was leaving the shop the car died and continued this several times. I noticed it idles low as well. I have driven the vehicle 400 miles (on a trip) and still the same issue. Any ideas? All was well with idle before battery drained. The battery was replaced June 2008.

Thank You,

Have you actually recharged the battery fully after it was drained or did you just drive it after you got it jumped? Might wanna throw a charger on it to get the battery back to full. Only other thing I could see wrong would be if it were jumped improperly and it messed up the computer

if you didnt completely charge the battery you could have fried the alt by making it work extra to try and charge it back to health... check the alt. and charge the battery if you already haven't done so...
