Hi, I'm Greg (Indy-Tech).
Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Hi Yvonne .

Yes your battery voltage is too low this happens when the battery gets to lower than 10.6volts .

You will need to check and recharge the battery .

Then try and start the engine when running check battery voltage again you should have 14+/-.5 volts if alternator is good .

If voltage is low at less than 13 volts alternator is bad and will need repairing or replacing .

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
