Use a digital multimeter across battery posts. Have helper turn key to crank, how low does the voltage drop? Generic specs say it shouldn't drop below 9 volts. Battery connections all clean and tight?

Also, you may need to have the starter tested. Some of the national brand autostores will test it for you.
