Hey guys, last night and this morning i notice when starting up the car, when i turn the key it hesitates for a second or two, makes one or two clicking noises, and then turns over and starts. Any ideas??

I'd start off with a load test on the battery. Most tyre joints can do it. and shouldn't charge anything if anything at all

Thanks for the replies guys, the dash is telling me the battery has plenty of charge, plus its only a couple of months old and its a pretty good battery, so i'll take it to my mechanic to check the relay, Thanks again fellas!
