This vehicle, while driving at 5 mph just quit. While coasting I drive I turned the key to start and the engine fired and started runing for about 2 seconds. I stopped and tried to start the engine but it acted as if the battery was weak. 10 MINUTES LATER I STARTED THE ENGINE AND IT RAN FINE FOR ANOTHER MILE OR SO. If I try to crank the engine it acts as if the battery is dead. I checked the battery, it shows 11.62 volts. The engine doesn't evev turn over

11Volts is low and an indication of a troubled charging system and or battery
charge battery and check if on the border replace check battery terminals
start engine and check battery volts if below 13, 5 suspect a bad alternator or troubled charging system and have to be checked
do not leave low battery or border line battery with a new alternator as it will for sure corrupt and ruin the alternator
good luck
