My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Check and make sure the jumper cables are good quality cables as I have seen some of these weak before and cause this issue here.If they are check your battery cables and make sure they are clean and tight at the battery.
If all of these are o.k. you may have a battery that has a shorted or damaged cell that will cause this here needing replaced.If the battery was tested and found o.k. let me know.
Thanks Pete
