Good day and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXX I'd be happy to help you with your problem today.
That could be just another bad battery, as sadly, often "new" batteries are. It could also be a charging system failure though and that would need diagnosed & addressed.
If you have a multi meter & a battery charger we can easily diagnose the problem so you can fix it or know what needs fixed.
Please let me know if you have those tools & we'll figure it out.
just battery charger
ok, thanks, that is a great start, do you have any buddies close by that would have a meter?..
a few miles away
In order to diagnose your issue you will need a multi meter. I'm not in any hurry.
let me know when you get your hands on the meter & I will walk you through a series of tests.
connect the charger in the meantime so that the battery is ready later.
keep me posted. talk soon..
