    Im a Noob,

    Went a got myself a mutlimeter as i was having problems starting my car.

    left the car for three days:

    after three days used my multimeter and here are the readings

    Direct battery test: 8.95
    after jump start: 13.97
    After 25/30mins car idle: 14.05

    Left the car overnight next morning she flat. I guessing my alternator is ok?
    the only thing i found strange is the heater system is blowing even if the car is off (only sometimes thou) could this be the problem?

    is there anything i can test?
