Voltage stuck at 12

Hey guys got the car out of storage today and got about a half mile down the road and noticed that the voltage gauge was pegged and my tach light was so bright I thought it was going to explode. So I pulled over. My son was following me so I had him run to the parts store to grab a new regulator. Swapped it out but now it just sits at 12 and will not go up any in fact it stays at 12 even if I have the regulator unplugged ??? What does this mean is my battery junk ?? I charged it before picking up the car but at the end of the year my battery was acting strange. In fact when I went to start the car to take it to the storage unit it was dead and had to jump it. I am absolutely horrible when it comes to electrical any help would be appreciate. I don’t know is the battery bad. Is my new regulator junk ???? Help

Exclamation Re: Voltage stuck at 12

Always a great idea to do a full systems check and a full inspection before and after winter storage. Our brains tend to forget little vital details until the first warm day cruise. Most problems can be fixed the first few months of winter or until it gets to cold to work comfortably and then you are ready to roll in the spring.

Glad it was super simple and at least you have a new regulator - hopefully solid state - in place on the job.
