Hello! Either the positive battery connection or the ground connection is resistive (dropping voltage across the cables)...The ground connection being most suspect...If you have a digital multimeter and a wee bit of experience using one these connections can be tested...Set the meter to the lowest dc voltage scale...Place the + probe of the meter on the center of the + battery terminal...The - probe on the other end of the cable at the starter...You must read less than .03 volts...Next, place + probe on the - battery post and the - probe on bare metal of the starter case...You must read less than .05 volts,,,If not the connections need to be removed and cleaned so bare metal touches bare metal...A quick test with meter set on the X10 ohm scale is to measure between the center of the - battery terminal to both chassis and engine block...Both should read a dead short ie...zero ohms...Guru...saailer
