the check engline light has also come on. so i dont know if there is some other issue too
My van's 12V battery (the only one under the hood in my van) was replaced in January 2019 under warranty by the dealer. A new three year battery was put in the van at no cost to me. See the link for more info.

The check engine light code can be read at an auto parts store if you can't get to a dealer to get it read.

I believe a fully charged new 12 volt battery should be 12.6 volts at rest.

Your reading of 14.3 while running is a indication that your alternator is charging the 12 volt battery.

The 12.3 volt reading from your battery at rest would indicate its capacity has been reduced. Your battery still may be able to start your van under optimal conditions but it might not under stress (i.e. cold temps). My guess is that your battery needs to be replaced.

thanks, i got to the dealer, they said the CCA left on the battery was very low, 180, so i got a free new one.
