I would buy new battery cables. Cut the protective coating off the cable about two inches above the connector. If you find that the copper is all white powder, it has probably crept up even higher. It may be just as bad down at the starter. Anytime I have seen this happen it was due to low voltage. Either a weak battery or bad cables and grounds.
