You have a voltage issue somewhere between the battery and car. Does your car have 2 positive cables and 1 negative cables?

Please inspect/replace the other pos and neg cable please, so that we can eliminate those as the culprits.

Sorry, no I do not.

I didn't mean for you to run right out and buy new cables. I was simply asking for you to pull the boots back on the cables at the battery and inspect for corrosion. Usually cleaning with a wire brush works, but considering your cables are 13 years old, they may be tired and worn out. What your looking for is a a white sooty powder on the cable ends. Use a wire brush to clean them.

Normally the issue is at the battery side of the connection. All you have to do is disconnect both cables from the battery and by hand, you can pull back the rubber boot that protects the actual electrical connector. From here, you can use a wire brush to clean the contacts. No cutting of any sort is needed to clean battery connections.

Look here and this page will show you how to do it...

If you have the typical 3 wire POS system, you should have 1 goes to fuse buss panel at fire wall, 1 to starter and one to alternator.

Any chance you can post pictures of your batter and connections?
