You should have this checked to see if it's a starter or not. There are fusible links that can burn out attached to the starter. They will give the same indication.

Charge your battery and have it load tested. Most auto parts stores can do this. Also check your charging system.

If the votage drops that is usually anindication of a bad battery or cable, etc. If the starter has been tested, it sholdn't draw over 250 amps if it draws more than that it's bad unless you have sometype of engine problem that is not allowing the starter to work.
