my 996 stopped working last month.I've been sittin' on it only.It'll turn over ever too slowly to start.So i hooked the jumper cables off my truck.It STARTED!! WOO-HOO! throttles fine too.Measures 11.8 volts at idle.And 13.4 at around 2500 RPMs.It has restarted under it's own battery,but SLOWLY,and cranking voltage drops to 7.5v The battery has been powering since Jan '01. I am now thinking my starting problem is BATTERY, not mechanical or starter related as before. What do you guys' think? Thanks' for any assistance you can offer a fellow 'isti.
