Default Battery Voltage.

It'* not a problem....yet.
When the car is running, the voltage varies between 14.6 and 14.9 volts.
When it is off, the voltage measures 12.7 v. If I turn on the ignition, but don't start it, with the lights and all accessories off the DIC only shows 11.8 to 11.9 v.

It is the original almost 5 year old battery.

Is this normal?

Lucky bastard! I only get 13.1 volts with the car running, and 11 with the car off, ignition on. I have a new battery, and a 3 year old alt. I think my alternator is crapping out.

14.4 is the target, plus or minus 0.5 is fine. 14.4 - 14.8 is no problem.
