A couple weeks ago my battery died in my GTO. Didnt really think to much of it because I did buy the car about 3 months ago(60kmiles) so I thought what the heck, il just get a brand new battery. got the batts all switched out and it was running fine for the next 2 weeks. last night I literally parked my car for about an hour and a half max and got back in to find a lifeless goat.......againhttp://www.gtoforum.com/images/smilies/mad25.gif. il add that i drove the car to and back from work witch is about 30 milles all together before this happened.
PLEASE HEEEELLLLLLP!!!!!!!

The battery charges as you run your car. To have a new battery die 90 minutes after letting it sit suggests you have a serious drain someplace that is draining the battery and the charging system is not charging the battery. Start with the voltage regulator.

Thanks for the helpful info. it turns out my clamps that clamp on the battery bolts was worn out and a little loose. i ended up replacing both clamps wich were about 4 dollars a piece. Its probleby the cheapest fix for an issue ive ever had.
Thanks again Bro

Yes the alternators in these cars have an internally mounted regulator as do most vehicles since the late 70s/early 80s.
