I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Royale 88 LSS that has been diagnosed as having a battery drain. The alternator and battery have been tested as O.K. Yet recently the battery light has been coming on even when the battery is charged. The lights are also go in and out from bright to dim (seems esp. When using headlights). Have cleaned the positive battery cable yet may need to replace this. The car does make a sound also like a swith or silinoid is trying to open or function or someting (intermittant). The car after driving will sometimes not restart. I do charge the battery by using a lead plug on the negative cable so there will not be a drain. Please help as I have had to take off from work in order to fix this car.
