Fully charged battery but nothing is happening when i turn the key. i relaced the alternator a week ago per my mechanic thinking the voltage regulator was stuck open and draining the battery. Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature? Park and not sure 2016 silverado 1500 Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Silverado 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far? No im no mechanic by any means. Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? Have to keep a charger on it all night or disconnect the battery to keep it charged.'
