    is the battery light on when driving the car, or does the battery only drain when the car sits?

You never mention if the battery has been load tested or checked for a shorted cell also what is the voltage output of the alternator at 1500 RPM? When does this low battery occur? after setting? when exactly?

I have a 95 olds the battery continues to drain to zero. I have replaced the battery 3 timesi, I just got the alternator back with a new regulator, any ideas

Usual way to test is use amp gauge between battery + and battery cable, then pull fuses on at a time to see if the drain goes away. If you find a fuse that fixes the problem, check all circuits associated with that fuse. Check cigar lighter for being shorted/stuck in. check glove box light, trunk light, under hood light for not shuting off.

Alternator was replaced still wont charge

Check the wires to and from your battery, including the wires to the alternator and power distribution block.

I had a similar problem in my olds 88. I found while replacing the corroded battery cables that the wire connecting to the alternator was also severly corroded, replaced all wires going to and from the battery and all has benn ok for the past few years.
