The problem here is rather least the MAIN problem.

Unless you have left something out of the story, you have an intermittent bad connection on one of the main battery cables......or possibly inside the battery itself.
First you should remove the battery cables and clean the terminals and clamps. Also do that for the OTHER end of the main cables (usually at solenoid and at frame ground).
If it still acts up, you need to attach your voltmeter somewhere AWAY from the battery, like at the solenoid and frame ground, and then tap and twist on the main cables to see what makes the voltage dance around.
It may turn out to be the battery itself.
Even if the main problem is not the battery, what you have done probably shortened it's life a lot and you will need a new one soon.
