I would try a new starter first. take it off and go to your local automotive part store and have them determine wether it is bad or not. if thats not the problem then it could possibly be the alternator, my best friend had a dodge dakota that did the same thing you are describing and came to find out the person he had just bought the truck off of put a new alternator on the truck but it was the wrong amp alternator for that truck. he got the right one and truck is just fine now. make sure you check the power and ground connections on your battery before you do any of this stuff, sometimes the connections can be loose. good luck
