YOUR HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU PAUL
It sounds like your starter may be dragging and over amping the solenoids, but it could be a cheap solenoid issue too.
Replace the solenoid with a good quality one and see if that fixes it.
If not then you should probably remove the starter and have it tested.
Or, have the starter tested first then replace the solenoid, however you wish to do it.
