X2 on clean the battery cable connections. Better yet replace the battery cables. Unseen corrosion can occur inside the terminal lugs which can cause the problem you describe.

boothboy Do all the things suggested, there all good. The next time it does it stop trying to start it. Get some one to hold the key in the start position and tap the starter with a hammer . If it starts replace the starter. If not back to square one. I would also clean the battery terminals. It can't hurt and can also cause intermittent starting. Don't take anything for granted.

S10 Racer Check all starter connections for tight with no corrosion and make sure you have a good ground. You should have a ground to the engine from the battery and a ground from the engine to the chassis and ground from engine or chassis to the body (you can't have too many grounds IMO). It could also be the ignition switch or neutral safety switch going South.
