Battery is too low, but alternator is obviously charging. Swap out the battery, or have yours tested. 10 volts is a discharged battery.

this is eithere a loose positive cable from the altenator to the battery or the regulator in the altenator is about to fail. if you have not had any problems starting the vehicle then most likely its a loose connection between the gauge and the charginging circuit or the gauge is faulty. take a multimeter and test the charging votage at the altenator while the vehicle is running it should measure 13.5 volts and should not change more than .5 volts. if the voltage drops more than 1 volt the regulater is bad and the altenator needs to be replaced. if it is working fine then looke for a bad connection make sure all positive and ground cables are tight. if they are replace amp gauge

the voltage regulator is in the computer,check you battery with volt meter with engine off it should say 12volts then check it again with engine running and it should say 14-15 volts. if not the you will have to take it to a dealer to check the computer,hope this will help you!!!

Generally the standard voltage should be 13.5 to 15.5 depending on the load that is being put on the vehicle and age of the battery an older battery may require more voltage to charge. Unless the voltage drops below 13 you are probably ok.
