good morning Lane my name is ***** ***** you load test the batteries?

Expert:  John Oliver replied 1 year ago.

it is very possible to have plenty of voltage in the battery but little amperage. so I would suggest to load test the battery to make sure there is enough amperage to do the job. if the battery tests good then you will need to move onto your connections. sometimes I will use a set of jumper cables to test connection by putting a cable in place of a battery cable (like doubling up the cables)

if you have been cranking slow I would say that your battery is shot, you have a poor connection from the battery to the starter or your starter is starting to fail
