I changed the battery and one of the terminals then the lights work and radio but when I crank it, nothing happens. When I mess with the battery its s little noise but still nothing. So I am wondering what is the problem?

You need to loosen the tigntening bolt to allow the terminal to expand, push it down with twisting motion and retighten the bolt.

Seems the notification process is faulty an we are not being notified of rreplies made.
