you say it shuts down when you attempt to start? Voltage seems to die? Have you checked the negative battery cable to the frame connection. Do you have a voltmeter to test with? What does battery voltage show, before start and when key is turned?

Solenoid or starter could cause it. Remove the starter and bench test it.
