It should read 14v if the IMA system is supplying it with power. If it is uner load and the 12v battery needs charging and the IMA battery isn't supplying power, the voltage would be lower but not that low. 11.6v should be triggering the 12v charging fault indicator.

My Scangauge pretty much always reads between 13-14.2v

IMA battery is dead and BCM disconnected. Something happened all of a sudden and been looking for the problem. Either at idle or driving DC/DC is at 11.6v. Is it shot or some component?
Have checked all the wiring, connectors and the large fuse next to the IMA.
