Check the voltage at the battery both with key off and while attempting to crank. It might be dropping to low when you try to crank.

Clean up the battery cables. A common problem. Both ends of both cables.

Test the battery cable. Some times they corroded inside. Check in tech info under testing. Choose the index and you can pick the test you want. You will find tests for the cables. There'* also a ground wire on the rear side of the block that provides ground for the sensors. Check that one as well.
