may indicate full charge condition in the OCV test and the specific gravity test, but still not have the storage capacity
necessary to properly function in the electrical systemFor this reason battery capacity or load test should be conducted
whenever poor battery performance is encounteredNOTE: This test cannot be pertormed with an engine or starting system that
is not working properly12Attach multitester to the batteryThe reading should be 12.4 volts or greaterEngage electric starter
