I would check the battery connections and the ignition switch. If a late car, check for loose or dirty connections at the little red plastic connector close to the battery.

> Guys,
> I have a car I have been moving nightly for the past month, or so. It does have starting problems when it's damp out - and is hard to get running cleanly on all cylinders.
> Tonight I was trying to start it, and it was cranking normally. Suddenly it would barely crank - but I have never seen a battery drop off voltage that quickly. After about a half hour I tried again - this time it cranked normally and started. As I drove it around the corner it sputtered & died. Again, after a minute or so it very suddenly would barely crank over.
> Any guesses as to the problem - starter maybe?
