Check your battery ground (-) cable connections. Make sure they're clean and tight. I'm assuming you had this problem before you replaced the starter but make sure you have the correct starter. Starters for the 3.1 and 3.8 are often misboxed because they look almost identical. The 3.8 starter is a little fatter and a little longer than the one for the 3.1. I have the exact measurements if you need them. HTH. -Jim
