It sounds to me like its a battery issue. I would first try cleaning the cable ends where they hook to battery. take them off neg. or black one first. then the red or pos next. Now take a wire brush or better yet, battery post cleaner and clean the posts and the inside of the cable where it contacts the post. you will probably see a lot of white crud on them. don't get that on your clothes or you will have holes there next time you wash them. reinstall the red one first then black one. You will probably need to jump it or charge your battery. This should fix your problem.
