Fails to start or turn over
Written by jordan_d_cronin on 10/10/2010 at 02:01 am

You guys are the best! Thank you for the quick responses.

I think you are spot on. I tested the battery with a volt meter and the voltage
went to around 3 volts when I tried to start it. I took it back to Batteries
Plus and they tested it and replaced it for free (although I did have to pay a
$3 environmental regulatory fee). After installing the new one it started right
up and it appeared that it was charging at around 13-13.4 volts when revved.
I'll probably take it for a test ride tomorrow, but I'm pretty confident that
the problem is resolved.

Thanks again!
- Jordan
