Question about Chevrolet G20
If the battery was heated up to to a short it is fried. Batteries do not usually work well after heating caused by excessive load. With the engine running, the voltage should be 14.5V or more at the battery terminals. When off it should be 11.75V to 12.25V if its below 14.5 when running, the alternnator is not charging well enough. If its below 11.5 when static, the battery is not taking a charge properly my guess is that the short overheated the battery and messed up the plates inside it.
