Question about 1997 Buick Park Avenue
Check the (red) + battery cable where it crosses over the metal power steering lines at bottom of radiator....very hard to detect .....over a peroid of time the insulation will wear thru....making contact with steel lines causing a battery drain just as you have indicated...clean cable in this area....use a inspection mirror and a flashlight.....the insulation will be worn off on underside of cable...you will be able to feel worn area with fingers....wrap area well with electrical tape ....Good Luck...

I would first guess the alternator, have it checked for how much power it is putting out with a meter. If it has to be replaced, it is pretty simple to do so and a cheap one can be bought from a nearby salvage yard. Check out www.car-parts.com for the nearest location of a yard that would have your alternator
if you have any further questions, let me know
