the BATTERY~ connections must be shiny...NEW battery like I have to get after the charge would not take...assure the connection to the motor has a clean bolt and connecting lug...be sure the Chassis ground is also assuredly connected...this might be the trouble ...the cable has a flaw that only shows itself when jiggled around and separated~...that's a theory anyways...NEW cables and battery and it's off to the races~

Please define "won't start". Is it flat out dead? Like all you get is a click? Or can you crank it over forever and the engine won't fire up like it's not getting fuel? Need to know this for a better diagnosis.
