12V 60A car battery

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

The battery should charge up to 14 volts. A reading of 10. 7 volts indicates that one cell is shorted. A good way to diagnose this further is to look at the water level in the cells. The shorted cell will bubble more vigorously and lose water faster than the others when it is on the charger. As far as I know there is no way to fix a shorted cell ot

her than a rebuild and I suppose rebuilding batteries is out of date. No, it depends on the DVM you are using. The normal behavior of a Sulfated battery is that it has a high internal resistance. So at first the voltage will go very high and then when the plates is getting cleaner the voltage will drop. At one point the internal resistance will be so low (due to cleaner plates) that the voltage will begin climbing again. When the battery has crossed the 12 Volt threshold then you can charge the battery with more current.
