39;96 MCI 102DL3 bus, full batteries, 3/4 tank, started fine several months ago. Now just rapidly flashes a set of tell-tales and has relays clicking - all that about 2-3x a second. Where does one find the trouubleshooting guides, and what may be wrong?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** for your question.

Does it do the rapid clicking only when trying to crank engine over?

I charged both batteries over night, now behavior is different. I "just cancelled" my account before I got this response, do don't feel my cancelling is your fault. The company sells people on the speed and simplicity of getting "just answers". Obviously not how it actually works.
