Hello iceman and a very warm welcome to the forum.
First up make absolutley sure that the battery terminals are both tight and cannot be moved at all.
If these are ok then I think you have a bad earth some where on the car. (This is quite a common problem).
You could try temporyaly using a jump lead from the earth on the battery straight to a good clean part of the engine (the lifting eye is often a good point) and try starting the car this way.
If it works ok you know you have a bad earthing contact somewhere.
If this fails get back to us and we will go further into the prob.
Hope this helps. Kind regards Oily.
