Question about Cadillac Fleetwood
Try this, take neg cable off and leave off after battery is fully charged, if battery does not go dead (and it should not) then you probaly have either a trunk light or something else staying on and draining battery.
This is where it gets fun and can take some time and luck, if the battery did not go dead with cable off then you will eihter have to start pulling fuses one at a time and then put a meter accross the terminals to see if you read voltage( if you read voltage something is trying to use battery) or pull 1 fuse at a time and see if battery goes dead, if does then put fuse back and try next. Quickest way is with the meter.
Hope this helps

sounds like you have a bad wire or short in the wire that runs from your battery to your alternator. you should have a connector on it which is plugging into the voltage regulator. I had the same thing happen with my 86 Camaro a few years ago

If you do not have a guage in the instrument cluster then it is going to be a light. The light will be red or orange and shaped like a little thermostat. When you turn the key to the on position it should iluminate briefly before starting the car. If it does not then you may have bulb out in the cluster.
