POSSIBILITIES ARE; VOLTAGE REGULATOR OR BARE OR DISCONNECTED GROUND WIRE TO THE STARTER. WATER AND SNOW WILL CAUSE THESE BARE SPOTS TO SHORT THE CURRENT TO GROUND OR ELSWHERE. I WOULD SUGGEST GETTING A WIRING SCHEMATIC FROM THE LOCAL LIBRARY OR PURCHASE A CHILTONS BOOK. WIRING PROBLEMS CAN BE SIMPLE OR UNTRACEABLE AT TIMES. I KNOW SOME PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER SOLVED A TAIL LIGHT SHORTING OUT. THE MANUAL AND SCHEMATIC WILL HELP YOU NARROW DOWN THE PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK!

Try cleaning the battery connectors, and then apply die-electirc grease. Probably not making good contact. This could be two separate problems. Dash and interior lights can be a bad fuse. Second, if the starter cranks over with a new battery, check your electronic fuel pump, and or your kill switch.
