I haven't checked connections to the starter but checked connections also cleaned off positive cable and retightened but still same thing. I believe like you said in your second answer that may be bad battery but still wanted someone else opinion..Thanks

Batteries usually have a average lifespan of 5 years and it can be less in extreme hot or cold or heavy use conditions. I would recheck th connections first then get the battery tested if it checks out.
