Question about Cars & Trucks
This usually indicates the battery has a shorted cell. Here is how you can test it. With the engine not running, take a digital voltmeter set to volts function and read the battery voltage. It should read at least 12.3 volts. If the first two digits are 11, then your battery is bad. If you show a battery voltage over 12.3 volts, then you probably have a bad alternator. Beyond that, I need more details, like, does the engine crank ok? Are headlights dim when engine is stopped? What does "battery gauge very high" mean? What is the make of the vehicle?
