Also, if you are welding or cutting on the car, always make sure to ground on the part your welding / cutting on. I have wasted (2) stainless braided brake lines by welding on the a arms (for limit strap brackets). You will quickly know that you messed up when the nylon comes out and brake fluid is on the floor.

it kicks the low voltage light on, have to turn off and restart. it will cut a piece of metal in the air, lay that piece of metal on the car, kicks the low voltage light on again

I would check to see if it's grounded, check the air pressure (too much is just as bad as not enough) and see if all of the consumables are in correctly. Other than this, probably need to get it checked out by a repairman.

Check the ground and make sure you have it as close as possible to the area you cutting....."Path of least resistance," that is the way electrons like to go...:D
