Batteries go bad. They have two purposes, 1..hold 6/7 volts measured post to post, the second function is to discharge to maintain a drain whether big or small until the battery charge is depleted. A battery can run the lights when the car is off, and the battery is capable of producing 4 to 500 amps, ie: starter. A battery can have 1/2 of its potential fail....run lights for a short time VS., not crank the starter. Your battery needs to be fully charged and checked for sufficient voltage eg., 6 Volt might be has high as 7 volts on a fully charged battery. The next test is checking to see if the battery can withstand a major electrical draw by using a carbon pile (battery tester) that can discharge high amps 400/500 amps for 20 to 40 seconds. If the battery can put out that amperage and return to the static 6/7 volt indication showing the battery is still charged then in all likely hood the battery has both abilities to hold a 6/7 volt charge and discharge high amp's like cranking a starter.

Having 4 6Volt cars with the heavy battery cables I was thinking of using some spare 12 volt battery cables as accessory ground cables from the engine to frame ground. I'm trying to use the cables for something beneficial(?) instead of hanging on the shop wall. Thoughts?
