Hello,

What is the voltage at the battery terminals with the engine not running, and what is the voltage at the battery terminals with the engine running?

i didnt have a thing that has the exact voltage, its a thing that said the battery was 100% and that alternator was working. and it is accurate because when my other alternator wasnt working at full capacity, it showed it and when my other battery wasnt working it showed it as well
