The red battery light comes on but engine will not crank, sometimes it will start fine maybe a dozen or more times then it will act up

Check all the cables to battery and solenoid to make sure they are tightened all the way. Sounds like you have an ignition witch going bad or a solenoid going out or a loose wire
