Was the old battery disconnect for any good length of time, maybe a capacitor had discharged and was taking all it could once you applied power to the cable.

Something that old will certainly have a capacitor or 2 not in the best of condition and they will self discharge over time, but since you didn't specify the length of time the battery was disconnected, I am just guessing at this point.
