Your starter solinoid goes: click,click,click,click,click,etc,,,,,,,and your alternator doesn't charge the battery back up.
Seroiusly, I found this out years ago, when I put a rear battery
mount in my street rod, and kept having to jump start the car
whenever I wanted to get it out. Found out the ground was loose, and there is where you actually pull most of the amps on a starter, the ground side. You've heard the saying,,,IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO,,, the same goes for good contacts on the negative and positive connections.

You know you're in trouble when your car SOUNDS faster than it REALLY is!
