I was at the park driving around, and I decided to stop at a shelter to use the bathroom, I was gone for 1-2 minutes. I came back and my car starts clicking (the clicking was fast, not slow).
So, I first thought maybe the battery cable was loose, still nothing. After first 25 minutes of sitting there (I was texting/calling friends asking for a ride) it then started to slowly turn over. Then, after 45 minutes of sitting there, I tried again and the car started right up. It also rained recently, so I am not sure if something got wet and kept it from starting?
The vehicle is a 1991 nissan sentra gxe.
Anyways with a problem like this what would I check to see what needs to be replaced? I already have a starter on its way from another oreilly's store, just in case.
EDIT; thanks for the response, I bought a new battery (I really didn't have a choice) I had oreillys test it, and the battery is bad, but the alternator is bad, too. I am guessing what happened is alternator went bad, and slowly depleted/killed the battery, too.
