Why would the battery keep going dead in a 1986 Cadillac Coupe DeVille if the alternator is good?

Had the same problem on my '93 DeVille. After removing all lights in trunk, under hood, etc, replacing the battery several times, I found that someone had dumped loose change into the rear passenger side ash tray and a penny fell into the empty cigarette lighter socket. When the lighter was put into it's place, it would drain the battery and yes, it did cause a wiring harness replacement. This solved my problem, maybe yours will be cheaper.Answer If your caddy has a load leveler try disconnecting the fuse, worked for mebad battery or your wire harnest is bad Answerwhy my battery keep going dead in 89 ford crown vic

9 out of 10 times it is going to be a defective voltage regulator in the alternator. If you hav gone over the vehicle and have not found a draw, your going to want to check that voltage regulator.

The starter solenoid on a 1986 Cadillac Coupe Deville is located under the front of the vehicle. It is to the left of the oil pan.
