assure the battery is newer than FIVE...these tin/antimony alloy batteries are junk inside of five years~...also the connection from the 1/0 black cable to chassis will assure all components can enjoy steady ground...make it steady by wirebrushing any corrosion that exists from multiple high-amperage starts~

if the others, are referring to the idle speed control, then check that. Redman
