You cannot infer from a simple voltage reading what the ampere
capacity of a battery is. It takes a load test to determine that. Most

you let a new battery go completly dead several times you may have
killed it. Lead-Acid batteries do not take kindly to being completely
Pull all of the fuses. Put an ammeter in series with the battery.
Install the fuses one-at-a-time and watch the ammeter. When it jumps
up you will know which circuit is the problem. A battery Master Switch
is also useful.
