you may have an issue with the charging system.

charge the battery, before doing anything else.

then, measure the battery voltage under the following conditions:

- ignition OFF.

- ignition ON.

- with the start button depressed.

- with the engine at about 2,000 rpm (fast idle)

let me know what you find, we can continue then.
