You have a connection missing!

Everything is as it should be but there should be TWO connections to the positive terminal - one to provide a dedicated high current path to the starter - a big fat cable - and a slightly smaller one for the vehicle electrics.

Without that connection the only thing that gets power is the starter motor relay.

Search out the missing cable and connect it up.

I know nothing of vehicle maintenance.

Good Luck...
