Installed new battery, voltage seems a bit low?

I just had an ACDelco battery installed.

The old one (from the factory) wasn't charging up well, and I guess it was time for a replacement.

So the new one goes in, and the voltage (according to the voltage meter on the turbo timer) reads as follows:

Idling, a/c off, headlights off : 13.6V
Cold start : 14.0V
Ignition on, engine not cranked: 12V
Driving with a/c on, headlights on : 13.2V

Are these numbers normal?

I believe the battery is rated at 45Ah, and is a small one, just like the one that was replaced.

I have tried searching this forum and EvoM, as well as Google, but have not been able to get the recommended battery specifications for my car.

Help is really appreciated, thanks guys

Isn't that right where they should be? Where did you expect them to be?

With the old battery, i used to get as high as 13.9 when driving with a/c and lights off.

Still, your response says it all -- the new battery is working 'as expected'

Thanks, Warr
