the 'engine off' battery voltage. If it's less than 12.8V (say in the 10V region) then you've got a shorted cell.

aye i wonder why it wasnt like that the other day. unless it was starting to short out. all the battery stuff checked out fine before. strange...

unless its what normally happens when batteries become faulty and it just became noticeable because the battery is inside the van rather than in the engine bay? so more noticeable?
