...make sure your battery is newer than five years old...clean the negative connection from battery to chassis ground....use a wirebrush, take it down to shiny metal....clean the connection from motor block to chassis...this is an important one too...clean the positive battery connection and connection to the solenoid...keep 'er all clean and you should not have any intermittent problems~
