If i go to start my car and it doesn't fire first turn of the key, next time i turn the key to start it, i just get a clicking.
Is it just the battery dying, or is it something else.
car is a BA XR8

No problems. B series rely on a strong battery all the time so the electronics operate correctly to i believe. Let us know how you go.

Once you get it started, check to see if alternator is charging.
