    Sounds like a situation with either 1) a bad connection and excessive resistance because of that at a battery cable - at the battery, the starter, the block, the relay... or 2) a transmission range sensor issue.

    First, visually inspect the cabling for looseness and / or corrosion. Check the battery too for full charge and ability to accept a load. Last, a diagnosis on the transmission sensor is a good idea.
