Question about Ford Lincoln Continental
There are two possibilities here. One the battery could have a short inside, and the other is you have something on the car draining the battery. To learn which it is you unhook the postive battery cable from the battery and leave over night, if the battery is still charged the next morning you have a problem with the car, if the battery is discharged then the battery has a short inside and must be replaced.

SOURCE: battery not holding a charge
Normally all circuits should be dead when you switch off the ignition.
Only usual live one, is the radiator electric fan.
You should hear this running after you switch off, for only a short while, if you listen you can eliminate this.
Perhaps glove box, or trunk lights are sticking on ? but normally you only get them if side lamps are on, but still worth checking !
You will have to try disconnecting the battery over a weekend, if it is flat on Monday, it must be the battery.
P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

Look at the connecting block and wires.
Not sure about this but it sounds as if a wire is not connected properly. Some have a single wire not with the block. It may even be a separate earth wire

Testimonial: "THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. THE WIRE HAD AKNICK IN IT, AND IT WASN`T GETTING A GOOD CONNECTION. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR THE HELP. OJACK."
Runs fine for how long? Is battery dead when car quits? If you jump it, will it immediately restart? Inspect fusible links on top of battery housing. You will probably find some burning/overheating there.
