Make sure you have all bolts off should be 3 maybe 4 if you have all of them give it a tap with a hammer

Well we figured it out. Turns out oys not the alternator or battery.. So kinda at a loss right now

What's it doing or not doing

10

well when I'm driving down the road all my lights and stuff will stop working completely but it will still drive for a little bit. it makes these weird noises like popping. and then eventually it will just die. I thought it might have been my battery got a brand new one and it still did it. Thought maybe it will be the alternator but the alternator is good. and with my car being a Cadillac is already so hard to iwork on.

    Lost power to the battery. Assumed it was the alternator. Changed the alternator and battery. Car will start and run when jumped but when the engine is shut off, it won't start back up.
