battery should be about 12.5v left overnight (shinier happy ones could be 13v)

start the car and let it idle for around 3 mins, alternator should put out 14.2 to 14.4 volts

if you don't get the 14v when running alternator or some other wiring likely at fault.... if the battery is old and been draining till flat, might have finished that off too
