Best Answer

Its bad

Clean the battery connections and make sure the connections are good.

If the battery has been tested, has it been tested under an actual load, not just by placing the meter on it? also if the cells of the battery are beginning to break down, it will discharge at inopportune times,

How do you know when a car battery is bad?

When it will not hold a charge nor take a charge it is defective. Of course something might be on pulling power from the battery. Any light or stuck relay. Disconnect the negative battery cable, charge the battery with a battery charger and let it sit overnight. The next day if the battery is still charged it is ok and you have something pulling power from the battery. If it ran down the battery has a dead cell and is defective.
