Hi there, I am CAM. Can you tell me your first name? It does not show through.

I am sorry to hear about this issue. IT may be a failing battery generator control module, which is the small clamp around the battery negative cable. IT could also be a faulty alternator.

AT this moment when it will not start, does the engine turn over?

Are the light bright?
