Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

how many batteries do you have

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
3 all new 12 volt system
Expert:  Wayne replied 12 months ago.

Thank you for that

I don't believe the wiring is wrong,

I believe you have a bad ground cable

clean and sand all ground wires on the frame, engine and starter

terminals also

from the batteries, neg to neg all 3 terminals, same as Pos

then ground cable from starter to Neg of battery

then another Neg cable from frame to battery

then another neg cable from frame to engine

Positive side, 2 cables to the Pos terminal of the starter

I hope this helped you
