Okay, then please repeat the test from the battery side. If the 
voltage still goes above 14.5V, then you have a problem there. This 
is actually hard on the battery. You might want to check it to make 
sure it still has water in it, up to the fill line.

It's possible, but only if you have very low mileage. Those were the 
longest lasting units, but they still only lasted 10-15 years with 
normal mileage accumulation.
