Electrical Charging Problem

Asked by Sep 30, 2011 at 06:48 PM about the Cadillac STS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1997 Cadillac STS wouldn't start the other day.  I took it in to a mechanic and had the old battery replaced with top quality, heavy duty battery.  After ther car sat for a couple of days, the battery was dead.  The mechanic has had the car for a week, tested everything and hasn't been able to get the car to replicate the problem.  Has anyone ever had or heard of an issue like this?
