2003 996 Carrera Cabriolet 6-Speed

I'm having issues with the car periodically slow starting. By slow starting, I mean it sometimes takes 3 seconds after I turn the key and sometimes takes up to 45 seconds to engage the starter. It has been slow starting more frequently lately. I had the battery tested and it was ok. Sometimes it starts immediately. The battery is at least two years old.

Any thoughts? HELP!

Tazz:

Check your ground straps...From negative pole of the battery to the chassis, from engine to chassis. Also double check that all connections at the starter are snug and tight, with no corrosion.

Not sure hoe often you use the car, but is sounds like a weak battery ( or bad connections as Maurice suggested). I would get the battery load tested at auto service center to determine it's cranking capacity. Pick one that yoiu would buy the battery from and I'm sure there would be no charge for test.

Good Luck!! Demosan :cheers:
