to check for surface discharge over battery...

unhook battery(if you have stock cd player be careful), Hook up the meter negative lead to negative battery post and positive lead to positive post..What do you get?? It should be 12.65 but anything over 12.45 should be good, if it is over 12 it should be fine and get you through for a while.

Anyways, now put he the negative lead near the the terminal and move across the plastic top, if you are still getting high voltage that means you have a surface discharge. Clean the battery off and be careful not to get anything like baking soda under the maintanance caps if you have them.

good luck.
