If the battery is slowly going down, it's probably the charging system. Batteries are only storage devices, and only store electrical energy that is created elsewhere, in this case, by the charging system. If your charging system is getting weak it might not be able to keep up with the radiator fan.

The battery does not have sufficient voltage to start the car when it's cold. Have the battery checked out. If it still goes click click after running the car for a while, have the alternator checked also. A bad battery will not hold a charge and a bad alternator will not recharge the battery, (That is the reason to have the battery checked first). Make sure the connections at the battery are clean and tight.

Why are you disconnecting the battery with the engine running? Never mind, you've probably already figured this out by now, but there's a good chance your alternator is fried and your spark plugs are running on battery power. Get your alternator checked out. New ones aren't that expensive (approx. $50) and can be changed by anyone handy with tools.

Why do the the fans keep running for a minute after you turn off your 2000 Buick regal?

The radiator cooling fan will run to cool the radiator to below the fan turn on temperature. You may want to have your cooling system checked if it happens regularly as your Buick may be running hotter than normal when driving.

I recently installed a new stereo system into my car now my car sounds like my battery is weak is it my battery that I have to change or my alternator?

Check the battery with a vom meter while the engine is running. It should read about 14.5 volts and if so the alternator is working, than have the battery checked Now if the meter does not read 14.5 volts, have the battery, and the alternator checked. If they both check out okay, the problem is in the battery or the alternator circuit on the vehicle.

I'd start with the thermostat. Make certain that you have plenty of coolant and that the radiator isn't blocked. After you've checked all that... we'll talk.
