Have you checked your connections at the battery?
If you measured voltage at the battery terminals, that would only tell if battery is good.

Check the voltage on your cluster.
Unlock menu 19
Menu 9 will show you voltage at the battery.

If you tested 12.5 at the terminals, and read less on the cluster, then I would guess a connection.

I have started my car on as little as 10.9, and have had a no start issue because loose terminal connection, even when the fob key was still able to unlock the car.
