Hi racestyle as already said checking the voltage at an outlet like you describe won't test the battery. Have you checked the earth cable connection between the engine and the body. You could try puting a single jump-start cable between the engine and the negative terminal of the battery. Does the engine turn easily by hand using a spanner.
