Car not holding charge

Asked by Sep 18, 2017 at 07:33 PM about the 1969 Cadillac DeVille

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I've replaced the alternator and the voltage
regulator and I also have a new battery why is the
car not holding charge? Could the starter draw it
down? Soon as I cut it off it won't start back up
unless it's boosted off. All my wires are the same as
always and I've had the car 3 years and never had a
problem with charge til I replaced the alternator the
first time which was a few weeks ago. The car is a
project car so it sits a lot
