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 performed with an engine or starting system that is not working
properly Attach multitester to the batteryThe reading should be 12.4 volts or greaterEngage electric starter and view registered
battery voltage while cranking engineContinue the test for 15 secondsDuring this cranking period, the observed voltage should
