Default Battery issue

I've got an 08 Precedent with 4 ea. 12 volt batteries. After a full charge my low battery light comes on after a short trip. Three of the batteries register over 12 volts and one is at 10. Would it do any good to isolate the bad battery and put a deep cycle charger on it, or should I start looking for a set of batteries. They're late 07's. Thanks in advance for your comments.

One battery is shot. Looks like new batteries are on the short list

Or you could go cheap and get a decent used one, until you are ready to drop $700.00-$900.00 on new ones.

Out of curiosity . . do you have lights and is the low battery the one that runs your lights?? . . . if so, an isolated charge on that battery MAY help in the interim . . .

My circuit breaker comes off that battery (driver's side rear). I haven't used the lights in a while. They are factory lights that plug into the existing wiring harness. Where should voltage be after an overnight charge? I'm looking at 12.4 on all batteries, but after a short trip my one battery is down to 10. When charging all batteries read 13.6 volts.

Your factory lights are feed off of batt#4 which is the passenger side front. Sounds like you have one or more bad cells in the bad battery. How are the water levels?

Eric, you're right. Sorry for the mistake. Water levels are good in all batteries.

You could always shop around for a used battery until you can get the cash together for a new set of batteries.
