checked all fuese (under hood and dash) all seem fine. tried to start again - batteries seem week... charging as we speak. Could this just be a fatigued battery issue?

Question ???

OK,

charged batteries (to some degree), fired up fine. Drove to Automotive parts store - on the way over I noticed it wasn't charging well... they determined Alternator was bad. Replaced altenator, gauge read it was fine, drove 1 block away and noticed guage was low again... does this indicate I have bad batteries??? Should I try charging them overnite 1st, then testing them tomorrow? Please help! Thanks from PA!

Mako,

Thanks for the reply... I drove about 10 minutes like that, do you think I did any damage? I plan to charge ovenite and try again in the am... I'll have the batteries tested. Sound like a good plan to you?

make sure that they disconnect the grounds on the batteries when they do the tests
