Hello, my name is Dan. Do you have a multimeter to do some tests? It sounds like battery could be shot if your sure it is charged and connections tight.

voltage shows 12 plus
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Monitor voltage while trying to start, let me know what it drops to. Also what year, model, make, and engine size is your vehicle? Thanks.

hi dan voltage dropped to 7 after 2 tries it almost kicked over just now put testers back on and is showing 12 plus volts
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

This would mean battery is shot, it should not drop below 11v. Replace battery, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.
