Batteries DO degrade ten percent per year, so if your battery date [flaked stickers off top] is more than ten or 2006 for example, your battery cannot be charged up, has dropped voltage and the starter solenoid will not perform with comprimized voltage....replace the battery, buy a good one, I spent $112- on an Interstate from the interstate dealer here~

if in fact your battery is new would say look at the other end of the black cable where it attaches to the frame/chassis. clean it down to metal, and clean the lug down to metal where it can pull 300 CCA without catchin' fire- they make a special wirebrush for cleaning battery terminals if you want to go fussy about it but usually a sprayer from the garden hose makes it so acid fumes don't get into your eyes, but away from the battery and terminals. hope this helps the situation~

i had the same issue with my k series. i replaced the battery, the starter, the alternator and nothing worked. then i replaced the main battery cable that ran to all of that and it starts with no problem. i dont know if this would help with a d series but its worth a shot cause it sounds like the same problem.

My 97 del sol wont start unless I press the unlock button to disarm the locks then will start. Has the same problem, battery is good and starter is good just won't start unless I unlock it first. Recently my receiver for the locks isn't working so I've been looking for other ways to start it.
