    My first impression is the battery or possibly a bad ground. Check your terminals and make sure theyre nice and clean. Since it is free and simple, I would take my battery to autozone and have them test it. Take a look at the grounding points. Check to see if the cables are frayed or damaged anywhere. Its all free and the first place I would look. Doesnt seem like a starter to me.

    If all those look good and your alternator is good(also free testing), It may be a draw somewhere. Im horrible in this area though so good luck.

    Imho, possibly weak batt or dead/damaged cell.. Possible wire/terminal issue where they are joined.. I'd have the batt load tested aswell..

    As for the exhaust, I would try to "oval" the pipe some if it's hitting the top side against the floor pan.. May only need a little bit more of a gap..

    Good luck!

    You could also try pulling the studs out of the terminals and remove the boots. Then a baking soda and water bath for the ends and studs. Then wire brush the ends till shiney. Reconnect.. If that solves the issue pick up some spray gasket tack (permatex, hi-tack) and coat the terminals with a liberal amount of spray.. This will "lock out" moisture and prevent corrosion from re accuring.. Cleans up with normal automotive cleaners like choke, brake etc...
