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.

If the 1996 Dodge Intrepid will not start, there might be an issue with the battery or the starter. This could also be a problem with the solenoid or the fuel gauge or fuel pump.
