well it almost sounds like grounding, so check out those wires on the battery and get back to me if the problem continues -RTBBilly

RTBBilly, do you mean check out the ground wire, negative, on the battery and make sure it's not frayed, or corroded? Thanks, John

oh my apologizes John, i was a little unclear, yes the wires is what i was trying to say. but i mean the two of them both positive and negative. and yeah i meant look for corrosion. also the small black ground wire next to the "starter relay". again sorry for the confusion. i'm still here to help -RTBBilly
