Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix
I would check your tensioner pulley to see if the altnernator belt is loose. If loose it will not keep charging the battery, which when driving would drain the battery.

Hi, to do a quick test on your battery just disconnect the positive cable from the battery and scratch it across the terminal on the battery if it sparks lots you have something grounding out like a starter or something they do that when the starters go bad if it sparks like crazy try unhooking the starter and see if it still sparks . keep looking for whats drawing all your power . when you scratch the wire on the + terminal and you dont get any sparks then it's normal and if you have a indash clock you'll probly always have a tiny bit of a spark when you test it . anyways try that see if you have a bad draw on your circuits if you do start at the starter , unhook and test .find what is *grounding out* is your main goal..
