There is a cable from the black positive battery terminal going to the chassis and also to the Engine block...this cable must carry at least 50 amps..that's why its so FAT~...be sure that it is there and also that it's prepared to carry that level of current~ certainly do not want a weak sister...or to depend on control linkages to carry this level of power...think that might be it....dodgey ground~ ...yep~
