I agree with the other
replies about checking the cables.
A few months back, I installed a new
battery and had similar symptoms.
In my case, it was that I simply didn't
tighten the cables enough for
good enough contact.
I guess I had been lazy and
wanted to make sure that the battery worked
before dogging everything down. I
almost was ready to take the battery
back before I realized I just hadn't
tightened the terminals enough.
I hope that your problem is
just as easily solved. -- Rik
