86 Iroc Camaro red cable connected to positive battery

Customer Question

86 Iroc Camaro red cable connected to positive battery terminal smokes when ignition key turns, I hear a rapid clicking, and the headlights dim almost completely, but the engine does not attempt to turn over. Thank you.

A poor connection at the battery posts where the cables connect can cause this. Have you taken them off and cleaned them real good?
