When i go out to my car and try to turn it on it takes it about 5-6 sec to start up. I have jsut recently bought this car and was told it was the battery...but last night after my drive home i checked the battery voltage and it read 12.49v...usally my car will sit for about 8 hours at a time...is this the battery just not being able to keep charge or something else?
Thanks

The battery voltage may be fine, however the CCA (cold crank amps) is low. I had this same problem when I bought my car. It needs to be replaced.

Any place that sells batteries can probably test the battery for you and tell you if it needs to be replaced, or just recharged.
