Your battery isn't charging enough if it's only got 12.5 volts. I'm not to sure about the idle I used to have the same problem but I cleaned my throttle body and that solved it. Charge your battery and if you can get it running and it's still only putting out 12.5 make sure your grounds are clean

Battery could be bad

Clean mass air flow sensor and idle control valve on the throttle body take them both completely apart to get them clean
