Well, the SE is being a little bitchy with me lately. I always had some trouble starting the car especially in the morning. I have to hold the key for a couple of seconds and give it some gas before it will even start... I am used to it, since all my cars have done that so far
.... first I figured it was just the spark plugs, but I replaced those and there is no change in behavior.
It wouldn't bother me any futher if it wasn't for the strange thing today. I came back from work around 4, parked in the garage and left it there. My buddy picked me up for my PE class at 5 and came back at 6.15. My dad asked me to get the car out the garage because we had to stack some boxes there. So I turn the key and nothing happens but the funkey clicking noise.... so I figure great, what now?.... try again, more clicking,... try again, even the clicking died and nothing happend at all, except for the dash lights to flicker a little...
I figured the battery just died, but I couldn't find anything that could have drained the batery in a little over an hour, lights were off, doors were closed, so no interior light were on either... the cd player turns off ,when the engine is off, so I couldnt figure out what could have done it, but I needed the car to go back to school, so I took my dads van, parked it infront of mine ready to bridge it (what ever you call that in english in correct terms), I figure I might try again, I turn the key and it clicks again, and after a second it slowly starts up without me hooking the batteries together yet. So it starts up and runs just fine for the rest of the day and behaves normaly (what ever that means for a trep).
Anyone have a cloue why my car would behave like that since it has never done that before, and why it starts up this difficult to begin with?
