New battery, completely drains while car not used for a day. Initial problem car lost power while driving, rpm went up when accelerating but power didn't eventually stalled. Started again, ran real rough,...

The charging system is doing its job It seems to have an electrical short which is draining the batt. If u have the know how to ck & repair electrical shorts then go after it, if not, take it in.

My battery keeps diying on my cutlass. this will be the third battery in a month. what is killing my battery?

could be anything take it to Autozone and have them test the altanator and regulator with one battery cable off and with a test light put one end on battery post and one to the cable if the light comes on you have a short somewhere or a light on in the trunk or glove box. But the charging system has to be tested and the battery cables have to be tested for resistance.

2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery light

the light is across one diode in the rectifier pack in the alternator, usually there are 9 of them, one of yours has failed, probably the failed diode is leaking current and draining the battery. In this instance the battery will be good (if drained) and the other 8 diodes will show a good charge.Get the current drain checked with everything switched off
