the engine needs to turn over fast enough to lgiht the cylinders. if it is dying right away, i am assuming the rpms while cranking are slow also. how old are the batteries?

Check the cables when you inspect the batteries. Mine were worn and corroded so bad that it was ridiculous.

I would recommend getting new cables if your cables are corroded. I got mine from custombatterycables.com and they really made startups easier. It is amazing what good cables can do!
