I had a similar experience with my '05 ST. Battery voltage was 12.5 v at both battery terminal, and at the battery cable ends. However, I discovered that the positive cable end was not tight enough on the battery terminal. I removed both cables, tightened each fitting with a wrench on each end of the screw clamp, then reattached them to the battery terminals. No issues since. Good luck.
