Most likely you have a parasitic draw. Unhook one of the battery terminals and put a test light between the cable and the terminal. If it lights, pull fuses until it goes out. the fuse that turns it out is the circuit that has the draw. Find what is staying on and repair it.

I was just driving my el camino and now it wont start back up all I hear is a click

Dead battery, try jump starting it. Your alternator may have went out, or battery has exceeded its life expectancy of 3-5 years. Also, if you have good battery power, you may have a starter or starter solenoid issue.

Volts problem

the best way to find if you have a short/draw being taken from the battery is to shut off everything in your car open your hood and close your doors in case you have a dome light that comes on when the door is open .Then take and disconnect the ground cable from the battery hook up a test light from the positive post and touch it to the disconnected ground cable if the light comes on you have a short now all you need to do is start pulling fuses until the light goes out then you know on which circuit your short is on.

1980 el camino battery light stays on but battery stays charged and everything works

usually in these alternators there is a diode trio inside and if one goes bad, the light will come on signalling a problem. take the alternator off and to the parts store for testing at full load if possible. these alternators have a rating on the outside of the casing near the adjusting mount that denotes the amperage size, usually around 40 -60 amp for cars and twice that for trucks, make sure that each part is checked by the technician and if any defects are found, replace it. now some models use the battery light for other reasons as an engine light so check on your model on the internet and see if thats the case...good luck

What should i do because my el camino has been sitting for 15+ years

Charge the battery, change the oil, transmission, gearbox and brake fluid, tank it and crank it up. Or, if you are in hurry, just charge the battery and start it. Check the brakes, though.
