So you had read what I posted to you?

You can check with a digital multi meter set on DCV. It should show around 14.5 DCV with the vehicle running. Also if the battery is bad you may get a false reading. Should have the battery checked, it may have a shorted cell. Checking the battery voltage with the meter it should show 12.5 to 12.7 DCV. fully charged.
