Today the van died on my wife while waiting for the kids at school. She said she had the car off for about 15-20 min and did say she left the lights on. I had it jumped and got it home. I just want to ensure the battery is fine. I tested the battery without the car running at 12.5 volts and with it running at 13.5 volts….I also tested the drop in voltage when the van is cranking and it dropped to 11.6 volts while cranking. Does it sound like the battery is fine and was caused from leaving the lights on?
From what you described, the battery sounds fine.
Has the van started fine since the jump? How old is the battery?
