so my car wouldn't start the other day so I charged the battery... I drive it the next day and my meter reads 12.4v at the accessory dc port. I turned on AC and it dropped to 11.9v... a week later of not driving, I check the battery at the terminals and I see 12.5v. I clean the terminals and hook the battery back up to the car and start it.... Now I'm seeing 15.2v on the accessory port and at the battery and it's 85 degrees F outside.... no warnings or error codes. Any thoughts or cause for concern?
