It's one of two things... 1. Your connection to your battery is not strong. Make sure you can't rotate the terminals to the battery, and make sure there is no battery acid between the terminal and the batter. 2. You ground wire isn't properly connected. Check the ground wire from the starter and the ground wire from the battery. Hope this helps. Dodge for life....

thanks i will check both of those
