First, check the battery and starter cables for their tightness or free of corrosion and physical damaged.

A 3/4 charge battery is 12.50 volts
A discharge battery is 11.75 volts.
A battery under a cranking load and it is reading less than 7 volts,it will be a recycled ( junk ) battery.

Local auto parts stores will test this vehicle charging system and the battery for free of charge.
