All due respect, but I actually have a battery sitting next to me just now with an intermittent fault. If I press down on the negative post it works and if not it don't, so I can only summise the lead bar connecting to the cell plates is cracked. How I have no idea as lead is pretty maliable, but can only summise someone was over zealous with a spanner on tightening the clamp.
I was just trying to help legend trace the fault which has been proving difficult.
legend, You may also find you have an inline 30Amp fuse (or similar value) in series with the battery connecting lead, close to the battery, and may also be worth checking the connections to it if one is fitted.
