1 Answer

you've got a reliable connection from the 1/0 battery cable to your chassis ground...use a wirebrush to make it a giant contact area...as this is the ground that your Dash and Fuel pump and Ignition use....actually does "weld" itself in place with each use of the starter...creates what is called a "brown-out" condition where power is limited to random voltages and random amperages....creating the failure...yes make sure this connection...and the connection to the engine block (near the alternator) can pull 300 cold cranking amps (hence the big fat 1/0 cable...to do the job.) spider on my neck....eeeew~
