Hi Jeff, I am not sure if you are still working on this or if you got this resolved but check for poor grounds if the batteries test good with a digital tester for internal condition for bad cells etc. If the connections and grounds are good along with the battery verify you have sufficient cranking amps from the battery you are using and beyond that it would have to be an electric motor drawing too many amps or you have a pin seized or tight, something binding, etc causing that function to do this. Let me know
