Hi ChampionC

Battery voltage when running (14.45v) looks good it should dip a little, maybe down to 13v when you put the lights on or run the rear screen heater. A bad alternator would let the voltage drop below 12v leading to a flat battery.

Battery terminals are a pain,if in doubt buy some new ones,my preference is the clamp on type.

Currently in Getafix's garage:
clean and shiny Scenic 2 1.6 16v Auto. (and a Fiat Campervan).
