Customer Question

My generac 7500E starter motor will not crank with a charged battery. Can the battery be bad even though it reads 12 volts on a meter?

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Does the starter make any sound? Check the battery voltage before trying to start, should be at least 12.5 volts, then when you turn to start. If battery voltage drops below 8 volts, the battery is bad. If no drop, the battery voltage is not getting to the starter.
