Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 3 months ago.

The battery can be fully charged but still be bad. You need to do a load test and a specific gravity test on it. It sounds like a bad/dead cell. You can also check the cables at both ends for tightness and corrosion.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools you
have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or
touch the vehicle either, so your patience is appreciated. JA is a
great Q/A site, but it does not replace a repair shop. So please
don’t shoot the messenger if I have to deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly appreciate a 5
star rating now and I will still assist you after you have rated me
too if another question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you
until you rate me.
Thanks again, Ron

I did a voltage test on the battery, it reads 12.67 volts, all connections have been checked, no corrosion and tight
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 3 months ago.

The voltage reading is great, but does it hold with the tests I told you to do? The tests have to be done.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now and keep
this link in case you need me again later on.
