Electrical problem
1982 Cadillac El Dorado V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 76000 miles

I recently purchased an 82 Eldorado from a police auction and new of a few problems at that time. Since then I have had the car fail to start, and stall because the battery died. I have since replaced the battery, starter, and alternator. The car has been running okay for a little while since replacing all those components, but now, I have to jump start the car to get it started. It runs fine after that so long as I don't turn the car off, even for long distances. But as soon as I turn the ignition to the off position, the battery has to be jumped again. Any suggestions?
