Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
Original cassette player clock stays on all the time. Can this be draining the battery?
Unlikely cassette clock is draining the battery, but there may be other drains.
Pull all the fuses, and while the key is out, use an amp meter to measure draw though where each fuse goes....

SOURCE: Dead battery or starter?
Take the battery out and have it charged up. reinstall it and you should be allright. Your car has discharged it completely, and it will need a recharge to start. The gauge is only measuring voltage, and not the status of charge.

Get a multimeter then disconnect the positive side of the battery. Measure the amp(current) between the terminal you just disconnected and the positive battery while the car is off. and have someone get a tweezer and pull out one at a time each fuse in the fuse box. When the amp goes down on the multimeter then you found out where in your car there is a short. Note the fuse you pulled out in your car manual. It could be radio shorting, domelight shorting. Sometimes kids drop pennys or coins in the radio disk slots shorting the radio or amplifier in the car is always on.
