Hello: Before you replace anything check the battery cables for corrosion and both being TIGHT. Use a 3/8 inch wrench to tighten the bolts on the cables. If the bolts are messed up you can buy replacement bolts (auto zone, advance auto, OREilly auto parts stores) Clean all corrosion off both cables.
It's the battery. Remove and have it tested at your local auto parts store. If you can jump start it go ahead and remove the negative battery cable while the car is on and if it turns off after you unplug your cable then your alternator is bad, if that's the case, then you may need to replace both at the same time since a bad alternator can fry the battery. If the car stays on after you remove the negative battery cable then the alternator is doing it's job and is OK, all you need is a new battery. Good luck
i think i know what ur problem is, i think its the relay to ur starter, not the starter itself. if there is a clicking sound when u turn the key that usually means that the relay to the starter is bad. hope this helps u
if you have good battery voltage at this time, and when you banged on the starter and then the car cranked over, it would appear you have a defective starter. i would imagine if you replaced it in july of last year that it could still be under some sort of warranty, so i would look into that. either way, it sounds as if you need a new starter.
