Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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?

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.
