Very little just for a minute wipers will hardly move headlights real dim stereo wont come on you turn ignition off a.nd try it again and wont get nothing battery full charged its all suppose to be 12 volt. The tester shows six volts and when you try to turn over it will not start
Technician: Andy, Truck Diagnostic Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok so this is affecting the whole truck , cab , engine , everything ? Can you confirm also that there is 12 volts at the batteries currently ?

I dont know on that for sure just says charging and we plugged battery charge up to it for several hours
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
While driving radio went off and driver smelt something hot then it died with no power
Technician: Andy, Truck Diagnostic Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok so we need to test with a multimeter to find out if batteries are in fact ok and reading 12 volts . That is first . Then we need to follow the large battery positive cable from the batteries to see where it goes. It will head towards the starter . We have to check and make sure we are getting 12 volts at the battery positive stud on the starter .

Ok well i could get this all checked about battery and cable gone to starter snd the positive stud and then see if u could help tomorrow evening if that doesnt help ..i can pay to speak with you again if needed
Technician: Andy, Truck Diagnostic Technician replied 3 years ago
I would start by checking for 12 volts at all the main areas , behind the alterntor , at the starter , at the main cab fuses , etc...
