used a multi meter and then a dump test showed around 12.65v and dump test didnt make that drop much alternator pushing around the 13v mark tried with all electrics on lights heaters etc and still pushed out more than enough power...tried jumping when cold at first start in the morning with a spare battery and get the same problem.if i bump start it down the street it starts no problem and will start ok for the rest of the day,problem is after standing over nite..had starter off today and checked for wear etc and all seems fine thinking at the moment possible lazy starter motor but usually with a xtra battery connected with jump leads that usually gives a lazy starter that xtra boost
