my truck is having problems starting, now that is finally getting cold, i have instaled some hella driving lights and reverse lights. i had the battery tested and could not test because only had 20% on it. they told me to see if it was pulling any from it and i tested it with it pulling 11.62 amps, i pulled off the stuff i had installed but only went down to 10.82 and that was the trailer brake controler. any help with this or if you think the battery is bad.

your alternator should be stepped up if it is less than 160Amp & your battery should be 650 to 700 Cold Cranking Amps ( CCA )

If you go to any auto parts store they can test your system, just give your battery a charge before you go

Personally i go to an Auto Electric shop & let them tell me what i need, for my preferred set up, my rotating lights really draw the juice.
