Response to madamesilverspurs (Original post)

25. Sounds like a weak battery, or poor connections at the starter.

A battery can be strong enuf to run pretty much everything, even if it's almost dead . . .

but the starter is a hell of a load, and the solenoid will kick in and out in an effort to turn the starter.

Start at the battery, especially the connections, and also the connections at the starter.

Good luck
