Switch on the headlights and try to start it. Do they dim badly or go out? If so it's going to be a battery or battery cable problem. Weak battery or bad/corroded battery cable connections. Or do the headlights stay nice and bright? If that's the case it's going to be a bad starter, bad starter solenoid, or bad neutral safety switch. HTH. -Jim
