Default Slow Starting/ clicking noise

I have a slow starting problem with my 99 lxi. When I turn the key my Engine battery gage goes to 0 and bounces around. Also I have a clicking Noise coming from the passenger side under dash Relay location. I replaced the Ignition switch and still the same problem. I load tested all 3 group 31 batteries that are only 6 months old and all tested fine. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

What happens when you hit the battery Aux switch while trying to start?

Rick, I cleaned and tightened all 6 Battery lugs/terminals with no improvement. then tried holding down the AUX switch in the jump position and the same results with the addition of the windshield wipers turning on once.

After bypassing the large marine grade switch nothing changed. I did try the remote ignition switch in the back of the bus and it fired right up! Any ideas ?

My switch does that sometimes, It will get stuck usually on rear start and not switch to the front. I just switch it over and over and it will finally take.

Still hunting for my starting problem when I stumbled across these toasted battery wires going to the house battery marine switch. Melted all the way through the ruber...

they can also get pinched Daniel . Those cables run behind the battery trays , you need to be careful when they are pushed in.
