...again I am going to say system ground....and battery age...Clean the end of the black cable (1/0)awg after taking it off of the spot that it is bolted to...coarse wirebrush it clean and the spot to where it connects to assure at least 300 cold cranking amp potential~ Five years old....tops...no really look at the top to see the "knock-off" labels indicating the day of it's first charge...buy another reputable brand with a guarantee~
