Wrong section but anyways.... Check the batteries, connections and terminals. Could be a bad starter. Over time the starter will slow down its cranking speed as it wears out. Did it crank pretty fast when it would start? If not, suspect the starter. Check all of your grounds as well..

I have 2 new optima battery and new alternator. Lights come on radio plays. It would start slow like it had a bad battery and then it would take off.
