i had a towing person out and they said that the battery was good, but maybe it could be the starter. Is this the case.

    A bad starter would be a primary cause for this problem...you can pull starter and have it tested. Make sure power lead to starter has not corroded or broke off and that the relay or fuse is not shorted out. You will probably want to start with this http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2001-Dodge-Intrepid/Relay-Starter/_/N-jf9x6Z9cj8k?filterByKeyWord=starter+relay&fromString=search
