Take the wire to the starter solenoid and connect it to a relay. Connect a wire from the battery to the solenoid, and then from the solenoid to the starter solenoid. that should solve your problem.

1999 chevy silverado 2500.6.0 l.if truck sits all week sometimes it rolls over slow and wont start.sometimes it will battery starter and alternator is good.if truck does roll slow then starts...

2 things come to mind, first check and clean all battery and starter connections. second, maybe you have something draining the battery. next time it rolls slow, put on a battery charger and see what happens. also, even though it is a new battery, it still could have a weak cell.

2004 Saturn Ion. Starting issue. Replaced battery and ignition switch. Still have same problem. Have not been able to start the car since 02/05/10. What could be the problem?

if not rolling over you need a new starter which is a resonable price.if rolling over you could need plugs or wires or coil.if it is tryin to start it is either gas or electric problem.if not running at all it is definetly a new starter will have you up and running.i hope this is some help to you.
