Have your starter checked for draw and if battery seems low have charging system checked.

There are two large fuses underhood for starter so either one of those could be corroded causing a problem. But normally they'arent

Thank you soon much. So I need to have it put on the machine again or what else could it be i? I noticed this morning that you could turn the cable post around the battery weigh your hands. Do you suggest getting new points as well. That wouldn't have anything to do with it would it?

You should not be able to turn the battery post with your hands, have a pro look at this.
