Default battery problem

I have a 2008 equinox sport. Some times it won't start. We jump it and it starts. Dealer has checked for anything that is drawing on the battery and everything checks out. Thought it was the key fob but that is good.

1. did the dealer load test the battery?
2. did the dealer check the charging system output?
3. what is the battery amperage draw that the dealer is observing?
4. When you say dealer I assume you mean GM dealer?

Get a new battery. Try also to check the alternator and starter solenoid.

I had a problem like that a while back...and as I stood there looking at the engine while it was running, I started to shake wires and lord and behold, one wire cut the engine off...I did it again and again still the same thing. Then I thought okay where is the bad part.
I took a good guess and cut about a foot of the wire that was giving me trouble and replace it with some good with.
For me problem solved, never had that problem again. Just some food for thought.
