Check and clean all connections at battery & opposite ends. make sure you back them off a bit, then retighten for better connection. Check all ground straps & cables closely too. See if that helps.

    Still the same? What is the jumper (I take it you mean boost) supplying that you don't have, Power or ground? That's the question correct? Have you by any chance tried another battery just in case there's a short in yours?
