get a new battery...if you tested this one would be short of the 12.5 volts they usually have NEW...also the cables are corroded...buy some new ones...use a wirebrush to remove all corrosion 'till a solid electrical connection can be made~ do not forget the secondary Black cable that goes to the motor block~ ....re-terate...BATTERY, CABLES, Clean with Wirebrush all connections prior to install.....and it's off to the races~

if you do not have the money...CHARGE you existing battery with a battery charger...my dad (who invented the Lead free car battery) says that after 10 years they stop taking a charge...so charge it if it'll accept the charge...if you're broke~
