Sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery or the battery is not holding a charge. Advance Auto can bench test both for you.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

You could try charging your battery first in case it is just a bit run down .If battery is suspect or run down , you really need it to be fully charged before load testing .
