Maybe your battery is low on voltage. Check the voltage, is it 12.3 or higher, how old is it? Alternator charging fine? If the battery is 5 years or older, I'd consider replacing.

Corroded connections can also cause this. The 6 volt system is adequate, at best, so any little thing that takes voltage away can create a problem.
