Default Dead Battery

Is there a way to tell if a dead battery is good/bad with a multi-meter? I have a dead battery and tried jumping it off, but nothing. A multi-meter is the only thing I have with me.

Default RE: Dead Battery

A volt meter will show if it's dead (below 11.8v ?)

It won't be able to determine the batteries ability to take or hold a charge.

Did you check , clean and tighten the battery terminals ?
