Sounds like you might have a short on the battery or short on your starter motor. Check the connection to the battery and use a volt meter to see if the voltage drops when starting.

I had a 1998 Ford ranger 4x4 I had the same problem, check your battery terminal, see if the are corided or if the terminals have any cracks on them, make sure the terminals are tight, make sure they are clean, or use some sandpaper to clean then, this should solve your problem!

had the same problem with a 1996 crown vic, it was the battery, found out only after having it towed home, costly lesson, they take a lot of voltage for all the components.
