You will need to check the voltage at the starter when someone is cranking it to make sure cables are sending all the voltage to it. You can do a voltage drop on the cables to see if one is bad or its connections are bad. Check ground at body and to engine and then positive cable for voltage drop. If both cables and connections are good then replace starter. If you need help doing the tests then contact a mechanic like one from YourMechanic to do the tests for you.
