    Likely the starter is worn out and drawing too much amperage. I'd change it.

You most likely have a internal short in the starter. You could pay to have a cranking test done or just replace the starter.

wire that goes to the starter not the main wire there is a smaller wire that sends electric from the switch to the starter solinoid might be shorting out (skinned wire between the starter and the ignition switch/fusebox

1995 dodge 2500 diesel starts then quits


Your shutdown solenoid might be getting weak. Locate the solenoid (on or near the fuel pump) and remove it. Leave it plugged in and turn the ignition on, then see if you can pull the plunger out with your fingers. It shouldnt budge. Also, check to see if it gets hot. It sounds as though its losing its pull right after the engine starts.

Could be the solenoid on the starter. Next time it doesn't start, hit the starter with a hammer or other hard object, then try to start it. If it starts, replace the starter before it leaves you stranded
