I would suggest cleanning the grounds and connections on the battery. It sounds like a poor connection is the issue or the starter has problems. Can you jump the starter out to verify the starter works and the main power connections are servicable? If you do try to jump the startere soleniod, tap lightly on the starter housing to unseat any loose corosion on the brushes and the starter may kick over. If this happens have the starter repaired since the armature and brushes are worn. Are you getting 12 volts to the starter solenoid when you turn the key to the start position?
