How to Diagnose a Faulty Battery

The most common symptoms of a faulty battery are:

Vehicle drives but cuts out intermittently
Vehicle does not charge
Vehicle is a lot slower than usual
Vehicle battery does not last long
Vehicle turns on but does not move
Vehicle Keeps Restarting
Vehicle does not turn on

Depending on the symptoms above, here are a few ways you can troubleshoot a faulty battery

Try and turn the car on, if this does not turn on check the battery is connected.
If the car is turning on check the voltage on the music display, this should never be lower than 2 of the total voltage e.g 10 on display for a 12v model.
