Check your connections to your battery and that means both pos and neg posts make sure they are clean .....your belt is next.....then have your battery tested.

    Yeah do you have a test light?

    You need to find what is draining your battery , you can use a test light to find out what fuse or circuit it is.

My 1996 Buick Skylark keeps cutting out and dying while driving down the road

This may be due to the antitheft system. GM's are notorious for these parts failing. When it dies again, look for a light that says "security" somewhere on the dash. If you see this light, this link should help you.

wow if your battery is that old i would get a different one but you can have the battery and alternator tested for free at a auto parts store they can tell you if its junk or not but thats why your having them problems when your alternater spins it charges the battery if the battery is no good it wont hold a charge and you car will die now it the alternater is bad it will not keep the battery charged and your car will die.
