I'm have trouble with it turning over

I replaced the starter on Tuesday but I'm still having issues. It's still struggling to turn over and when it does the gauges on the dash twitch back and forth and make some type of noise before acting normally. It's hard to describe the noise. What else could the issue be? Before I replaced the starter when it wouldn't start at all, I still had all power in the truck. Lights, stereo, everything electronic still worked.

Apparently, the starter solved a problem since it didn’t work before and works now.

I would carefully go over what I did to replace the starter and see if there is anything I forgot to connect or improperly connected.

Update (10/24/2021)

The twitching of the instruments, suggests the voltage is dropping severely low when it tries to start. That would be because the battery is bad or the connections to the battery are corroded or loose. Remove the battery connectors and clean the terminals and inside of the connectors with a wire brush. Then place a thin film of grease on them. Replace and tighten. If that doesn’t solve it have the battery tested at an auto store. I like Advance Auto’s tester.

Battery voltage should drop to no less than about 10V when the starter is engaged.

Check, clean and tighten all connections to the battery. Check condition of battery as well.
