this is improper grounding of your battery...check the date of the batteries..10 years is the MAX before they stop accepting a charge...and tops get corroded and need to be wirebrushed clean to assure 40 or so amps can get through also the chassis ground and the motor ground ....both must be full strength...get a new battery...make sure the power gets through the battery connections~
