wirebrush the end of the 1/0 black battery cable as it attaches to the chassis ground...wirebrush the lug...wirebrush the spot where it attaches...bolt them back together...this is where 300 cold cranking amps goes though a spot as big as a quarter...it gets corroded with unburned dis-similar metals~ coarse wirebrush and bolt back together and you'll be happy then~

Ty I will try it see if it will help. If that doesn't work any other suggestions?


Clean all of the connections and make sure they are tight and not corroted
