SOUNDS LIKE THE STARTER CONTACTS HAVE WORN DOWN. THEY ARE INEXPENSIVE TO REPLACE. THE PROBLEM WILL GET WORSE UNTIL THE STARTER CANNOT MAKE CONTACT AT ALL AND WON'T START.

AnswerI have a 97 Intrepid 3.5 that had the same sympoms. A faulty power cable that connects the battery to the "under the hood" fuse box was corroded. It looked as though it was manufactured to give out. The cable widened in diameter for a couple of inches as it intered the fuse box. There is a small hole that let water in that eventually caused the malfunction. at that the that way so Dodge could get a few extra dollars to replace it for 180 dollars. I said hell with that. They found it and I just spliced into it, pulled it apart (because its a male/female connection underneath the rubber sheilding), wire brushed the corrosion away, and electrical taped it back together. I was out 5 minutes and a 10 stretch of electrical tape. To hell with that 180 dollars they wanted.

This can be a number of problems. There are so many things that can be wrong when a car doesnt start. Here are the most common on a Intrepid. 1. Dead Battery 2. Wiring is Shot 3. Ignition Switch 4. Relay Module is not putting out the right voltage 5. Bad Starter 6. Bad Spark Plugs I have a 1993 Dodge Intrepid and right now it's having the same problem. It starts every now and then but i was told it's the Ignition Switch. Give those 6 a look and report back.
