Did you replace or charge up the battery yet?

No, Just periodically it gets in the way. I jump start it to move it. I was planning on moving it to the garage and recharging the battery to donate the vehicle to charity. It runs while slaved to another vehicle but dies immediately on removing the jumper cables.
