Where is alternator located on 1996 cadillac deville? how do you replace alternator on 1996 cadillac deville?

The alternator will be located in the front of the engine on the drivers side. To replace it you must loosen the idler pulley and remove the serpintine belt, once the belt is off you must unhook any wires goin to the alternater and then there are two bolts at the bottom of the alternater holding it in place. Remove those and the alternater is loose then it may take some jockying back and forth to get it out. Obviously at this point the new one can go in the same way the old one came out.

Replaced altenator and battery on a 1997 cadilac deville, belt is tight and altenator only puts out 13.7 volts?

your charging system is fully contained in the alternator and should produce at least 14 volts. I recommend you take it back for testing at the parts store. Though it is possible there is a short in the car that is pulling the voltage down, it is unlikely you would not notice such a short, as wires would be smoking. If the alternator produces more than 14 volts in a bench test, you will need to look for a short in circuits that are powered with the key in the run position. Try operating your accessories to see if any are acting up. Look around the engine compartment for melted insulation on wires, etc.
