Go to a tool shop like Harbor Freight and by a load tester... it's always a good investment... then charge the batteries and check them, but make sure to remove the cables first or you won't get an accurate test.

all that a volt/ohm meter will tell you is how mcuh charge the batteries have... it's possible to tell sometimes by that, but not always... say if you charge all of your batteries and all of them read over 12 volts (as they should) and one reads say 9.5... then it's probable that is the bad one.... but a load yester is much more accurate. It will tell you how strong the batteries are, not just what's in them.
