Welcome to the forum L J.............................

Definately loose battery connections.

This is one of the reasons we tell a million folks here to check & tighten the battery connections.

It's very important.

Before you replace the battery, most of them can be repaired and still live a full life.

Take the loose bolt out and go to the hardware store. Get a larger bolt and a tap for some new threads. Ask the hardware guy for some tips on rethreading the hole . Do it and Whala. Fixed.

Or......

On the flat round pad next to the terminal, drill a hole to accomodate a stud and re-attach the cables with a nut.

Don't drill into the plates!

I think roady89 can tell you exactly what stud to use, and all the details.
