I had an earlier thread about bqattery discharge at night. I pulled the Alternator, Starter and the brand new battery and had Autozone test all. The alternator and starter tested fine and the battery failed. They gave me another battery and everything seems fine but i noticed that my meter which usally runs right in the middle was on the "n" of normal.

Today as I drove it it kept dropping well below normal. My multimeter says 15V at the battery with engine running. But when I put my charger on it say the battery was at 10% capacity,. Any ideas? 15V when running makes it seen unlikely the alternator but the battery is not charging, 3rd bad battery?

Sorry for the long thread/
