Possible cause. I think 90 percent of the time a connection is bad on the battery plus or minus post and you need to disconnect and clean them real good. Put a little bearing grease on them also. 5 percent of the time the nuts are loose on the starter relay post or battery cable post on the starter. The next things are the external or internal starter relay is bad and lastly the starter is shot. A test light or voltmeter makes locating the problem a snap. Check the wiring between the engine and the chassi of the car or connect the engine directly to the battery - (negative)
