Question about 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass
I have a 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass and with a good battery and alternator the charging light stays on and battery will not stay charged,
SOURCE: battery not charging
Sounds like the cells in the battery have shorted. It's probably shot. Does the car run once its jump started? Does it continue to run after the cables are removed, if so your alternator is ok and its the battery. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Check charging system
So you have a new alternator. I S IT CHARGING ? If the answer is yes , and the battery still dies, I would say there is a 12 volt drain in the electrical system. Hope this helps

This is my second oldsmobile i have owned. Now there is two positive connections right above where the battery is make sure they are free of rust and they are tight be careful not to over tighten nuts. Oldsmobile's are terrible for those external positive posts.
