Re: wild voltage fluctuations
Either, as you suggest, brushes not making good contact, or the meter leads not making good contact across the posts, or a bad meter or leads themselves. Meter will never read negative across the battery posts, regardless of the battery charge, or lack of charge.
Might remove battery clamps and wire brush the posts and clamps and same with the other end of the cables.
