Hi Richard and welcome back to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, have you checked the oil level?

Still, let's check/review the basics. Proposed preliminary checks (if have not been done) :

  • • re-inspect the battery, its ground lines and/or re-check and re-clean the battery cables + terminals, connectors and wiring ;
  • • more importantly, have the battery externally charged; and
  • • then also have the battery LOAD TESTed (even if new/charged and just for the purpose of eliminating it as a suspect).
