Bad battery,and all so have the alternator checked.

Thank you, my papaw said the same thing. Gonna get it checked asap

battery may be fine. you only let it run for 30 min and you probably didnt drive it so it may not have charged. your alternator couldnt do anything to charge the batteries if it is bad so dont rule out the batteries just yet. first test your alternator or simply use a multimeter to check the output of the alternator while its running and if it isnt putting out at least 12v and not over 14v
