Re: Enging/starter battery pretends to be good but....

I would bet on connections or wire condition. If the voltage drops from 13.02 to 12.65 from charger to start battery battery something is wrong. Either connection(s), wire condition itself or wire gauge too small.

Is the wire from the charger to batteries direct?
