, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long response.
From what you are describing the issue that you are having is related to the battery. If the battery is not the original and is smaller it will have less cranking amps and will cause the problem. The battery needs to be replaced with the correct size battery.
