Do the headlights work?

Angel, I need to step out for a while. I can continue to help later. So far you are giving me plenty of symptoms that point to a weak battery or poor connections at the battery. Can you try a jump start and let me know those results?

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
