Kindly punctuate and grammartize your posts, they are quite tough to decipher.

Sounds like a drain on the battery. Back to the dealership and have them do a drain test to see what is killing the battery. If the battery is original, its past due now for a new one. Pitch it for a Delco replacement.

A charging system issue will cause things to go haywire, so rectify that. Make sure the connections are sound and also check www.alldata.com for any bulletins or recalls that might pertain to this problem.
