Sounds like corosion in the circuit. Start by removing the ground cable where it attaches to the engine and clean the cable and the battery connection with a wire brush or sanpaper. If that doesn't do it, remove the positive from the battery to the solenoid amd clean both ends. Next clean the cable from the solenoid to the starter. If this doesn't do it, replace the solenoid. Good Luck. jpass2
