Please Just go thru the motions of your battery connections (All) As I describe at the beginning of my answer in this link---the rest of it will not apply to you....I made this for Jeep CJ people....Your system is close to the same, the solenoid is a different style!

Usually what I describe to do is the "Most Overlooked, or taken for granted"......resulting in unnecessary $$$ expenditure....and that "Dumb Feeling"!

I pick door number one, a loose/ corroded connection, somewhere, between Battery and starter---Or battery and ground. Along the "Big Fat Cables/ Wires. If the battery clamps are "add on" " squeeze-the-cable type. Maybe corroded or not squeezin' any more. Really go thru the motions. NO--"That Looks Okay!"

Need more instruction? Maybe not a Mechanical type? I will still assist all I can. Let me know what your need is. Don't be shy!
