Question about Cars & Trucks
How old is your battery? Someone needs to check the battery's condition and state of charge, someone with a voltmeter. Also, if any battery or starter connections are not good or are loose, the starter may not be able to get the high current it needs from the battery to operate.
If the battery and cables turn out to be good, it is just possible that you got a defective starter. It has happened, and to check you would have to take the starter back off and have it tested.

check the spark plug wires, put water in a spray bottle and spray along the wires,especially by the coil,if the car starts to run bad or you see sparks, the wires are no good, hope this helps, Ray

It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.
