clearly this is a Grounding issue...one might be sure that the battery is newish..fewer then 7 and up to full charge...next, the cables should be free of corrosion....loosen and clean the connections or get brand new cables...the black should connect to the chassis/fender and to the engine block..perhaps this ground does not like a connection~
