Load Test A battery 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 system For this reason battery capacity or load test
should be conducted whenever poor battery periormance is encounteredNOTE: This test cannot be periormed 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
