It's right next to the battery it's a breaker you push a button to reset it.

Seems unlikely.
If what you mean by "bad call" is a cell that
is either shorted or open.

If the cell is open (bad internal contacts between
cells), no current will flow. A breaker or fuse
opens the circuit when EXCESSIVE current flows.

If the cell is shorted(short between the plates),
the battery voltage will drop by approximately
2.1 volts. Lower voltage should not lead to higher
currents, except for motors.........
What was operating when the breaker opened?

Have you measured the actual battery voltage?

cheers,
johnd
