Hello, I'm Brandon - The battery has a bad cell.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

Therefore it can only power up light, alarm and radio. But not enough amp or power to start the engine.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

I would suggest you to check the battery and replaced the battery with a new unit.

Battery typically only last up to 5 years.

A good battery should have 12.6 V when the engine is off.
