Unplug the small switch wire on the starter solenoid and try the battery again, if it still does it , replace the solenoid. It it doesn't engage the starter, check your starter button, it could be stuck. Thanks.

The solenoid is located at the end of the positive battery cable. The battery cable goes directly to the solenoid from the battery terminal.
