This one is stumping me. This morning the 2004 started up just fine. Drove for an hour then stopped. About an hour later tried to start and just clicked. Was able to finally jump it and drove it home. When i got home,I left it idling and got my multi-meter. when probing the 2 batteries, virtually ZERO voltage with engine running. Inside gauge reads 14 volts. Turned engine OFF to check batteries. They read near ZERO. Now here is the rub. When I DISCONNECT the side terminals from batteries and check battery (part where terminals screw in) directly, the both read 12.67 (fully charged).

That is my issue. Hooked Up = no reading. Unhooked = full charge. Will take alternator to shop tomorrow for testing/rebuild, but battery reading perplex me.

Any thoughts?
