Sounds most strange.


Battery's can and do read differently when loaded than when checked unloaded. But your difference is vast and suggests something odd is going on.


Possibly the battery can't provide the current the car motor needs.

Either you're reading your meter wrong or your car is not really a 1.2v car. Maybe 9v.
