I'm going to have to ask you to check the date of your battery...that can be found on the knock-off labels on the top of the battery...what you want is a battery that is newer than five years old....what will happen as the Battery will stop accepting the charge about 10 percent per year....the alternator cannot keep up and will fail if a new battery is NOT installed....now that you've got a NEW battery we can focus on the heart of the problem which is the ground connection from that big hunkin 1/0 battery cable to the frame...now this connection is closer to the wet and ground so you'll need a coarse wirebrush...disassemble this ground terminal and wirebrush the place that it connected to, get down to shiny metal with the wirebrush, clean the lug and knock any corrosion that may be on the washer and nut and re-assemble that...also the connection to the engine block being a 1/0 cable needs to pull a significant amount of cold-cranking amps---with renewed ground and solid power things will act normally again....(should)~~

the switch could be the victim of a drunken boot pressin' on it~ examine it and snap it back together~
