A possibility is an ignition fuse has blown when the radio was removed. Does the battery light light up when the ignition is turned on. The alternator needs that light to energise and charge, (without it you just run the battery flat), failing that charge the battery, connect an amp meter in series, with every thing switched off, should have a reading of about 0.5 amps (Time clock). If above 2amp that is what is draining the battery. Watch meter and pull fuses one at a time, when the reading drops, that is the circuit/equipment that's causing the trouble.

SOURCE: alternator is good brand new battery still want

If you have a test light available disconnect the negative cable and connect the test light to the cable and to the battery.If it lights up you have a parasitic load.Something is using power when it shouldn't be. A very dim light or acceptable parasitic draw is about. .015 amps depending on vehicle options it could be all the way up .025amps. If the test light is pretty bright it has a large load pulling it down. Finding parasitic draws can be quite time consuming. You can leave the test light connected and start pulling fuses one at a time till the light goes out or gets very dim. This can help you find what circuit is causing the draw. Once you find that particular circuit you will need to find out what services that circuit supports. Example the cigarette lighter may run the accessory lights such as the dome. You will need to find out what is on the circuit to start figuring out which component is dragging the battery down.

Any car with a Factory Anti-Theft System does this whenever battery power is lost. If your owners manual doesn't address this, you will have to contact a GM Dealer to get the system reset. Sorry!

My battery keeps draining it wont start without a jump start and dies if I turn on head lights or use my blinkers. Somebody recently stole my stereo I think a wire maybe arching and draining my battery how...

Have you replaced your battery yet? Sounds like you have a bad cell in your battery basically your battery is not holding a charge. It sounds pretty bad too because typically the alternator will keep it somewhat going while you are driving. When you put you're lights on its drawing a higher load on the battery and killing it. Does not sound like an "arc" of any type. I think you mean a short to power. That could be a possibility especially if you run through alot of batteries on that car. Normally like one every 4 years or so, give or take would be normal. Before you go running chasing short to grounds, check your batt terminals and corrosion on the power and ground wires.

What is draining the battery

Someone will need to disconnect the battery and check each circuit for a drain. You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams to check every circuit.

Obviously you have some type of short in the power seat electrical system. Try checking the ground side of each switch with a multimeter. you should not have any current on the ground side of your switch unless the switch is activated. And look for chaffing or short circuits in the wires

The belt broke on a1991 buick park avenue put a naw one now car wont start does turn over

Your timing is off because the old timing belt when it broke on you changed the timing so you have to have someone use a timing gun to check the timing first with the gun.
