mygig battery drain

Anyone have any insight on how to correct this??

I have a new optima red top from like 3 months ago, so its not time for a replacement

Only thing I did recently was do a mygig retrofit....been getting hard starts for a week, then it was dead as a door knob 4 hours after I did the clock fix and software update after work

Im almost sure its this, because I unhooked the mygig harness completely and the car is running/starting just fine

any insight how to correct this issue???

is there additional updates/TSB's or a way to maybe hardwire the unit in or something???

Thanks for ANY input

Re: mygig battery drain

I had an issue with a mygig drain after I copied a certain scratched cd to the mygig hard disk. I had to go into "engineering mode" and format the hard disk. You may need to reformat the hard drive and run it for a while with no files on the hard drive to confirm it is not a hard drive issue.
There is an "ignition off draw" fuse in the power distribution center under the hood, you can pull both those fuses while doing your trouble shooting until you sort out the problem.

Re: mygig battery drain

Sometimes when I turn off the vehicle and even open the door, from the lockpick I hear a slight buzz. If I put the key back in the ignition, turn to On and back off again, the buzz goes away. There has to be some parasitic loss somewhere so I'm interested to see where this thread goes.

Re: mygig battery drain

I unplugged the factory harness from the lockpick and my battery has been working fine for 3 days!

but, I still cant trouble shoot if its the mygig or the lockpick because there is no way to plug in the mygig without the lockpick
