2002 Volkswagen Golf TDI Question: alternator???

my car starts just fine, but when i test out the volts level on the battery it says 12.31. what does this mean. do i need a new alternator? or is it something else? -
Answer 1
Sounds like the Alternator is suspect. Also check the wiring and make sure that the batter is still good, i.e. less than 4 yeas old. -
