If your battery is shorted internally due to a broken plate, the converter WILL NOT WORK in order to protect itself from destruction.
Once the bad battery is out of the system, the converter should reset and deliver the 13+ volts (AT THE CONVERTER) if it is working properly.
Also you should check the two current limiters between the converter and the battery. (One near the battery and one under the frame or pin box near the umbilical cord box) The short side has a button that will pop out when it "blows." Correct the overload condition and press the reset button.
