Reply #165 – December 03, 2013, 12:15:19 AM Cables, cable ends?Is there a place that can test the battery close to you?I had this exact same problem with the Mounty back in the spring....turned out to be corroded cable ends and terminals. I couldn't see it, and it looked clean till I'd taken them off. I knew it had to be the cable ends when the tester indicated my alt was putting out nearly 14 volts. I ended up with a new battery and new cables, plus brass terminals. I put brass on everything that I own now. I'm sold. Stays clean, last longer than the lead POS's, and if you need to jump someone, the jumper cables don't chew them up nearly as bad as the lead cable ends. I also replaced my starter cable. Was expensive, but I was motivated.
