    Have someone help you jump start the car, or charge battery. Drive it to any auto parts store for battery purchase and free battery installation.
    NOW, question is why did your battery die suddenly? This should be checked by a mechanic!

    Thank you for your reply. What I need is to remove the battery and need diagram/instructions on "HOW TO". I can charge it at home. Then I will take it to someone to diagnose the sudden, 100% battery discharge overnight. Please, where can I find a visual "HOW TO REMOVE BATTERY FROM 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood, Front-wheel drive? Thank you again for your original response.

    Try youtube for a video. Tools: 5/16" or 8mm wernch or socket,, 1/2" or 13mm socket, ratchet and 10" extension should do it. Remove cables noting: negative first, positive last, hold down wedge or bracket and the battery. Reverse procedure to install the 'charged battery' noting: hook up positive cable first, negative last! Be careful.!
