Hello. It sounds to me like the battery cables are not tight. On your model there are two ways to tighten the battery cables. There are 2 nuts on the positive post that need tightened. Make sure these are tight. If they are you may have a poor connection with the wire to the eyelet that the wire is inside of at the battery post. Let me know if this helps. The terminals on the positive and negative post should not be able to be twisted or moved by hand. Lou P
