Okay, thank you good info.A fully charged 12V vehicle battery should read 12.6 volts or higher. IMO your battery is on the way out.
I agree that your throttle body should be cleaned and intake retorqued (I have retorqued mine a couple of times) but I am leaning toward a battery issue seeing what yours is reading.
Both the throttle body and intake have specific procedures that should be followed. Threads on those can be found by searching the forum.
Just an update: I’ve put about 250 miles on just since the day of the issue and posting. Multiple occasions of parked idle. And everything has been totally normal
The battery being the culprit is interesting to me, as it really hadn’t even crossed my mind. Like some of the other members mentioned, my mind was focused on the big 3: fuel, air and spark. That said, it definitely does make sense to possibly be the battery. The more I think about it, such a blip of an issue does lead me down the road of being somehow electrical/computer in nature.
With the age of the battery I certainly can’t say it owes me anything. So, I’ll head out this weekend and buy one.
