My car wouldn't start the other night and was just making a loud and fast clicking sound when turning the key. I decided to wait til morning to get the issue fixed and then it started the next morning? I figured it was just a bad battery but now it started again so I'm not sure. Also a month back the engine randomly shut off while I was driving but it immediately started back up again when I turned the key. Thanks

I had pep boys check the battery and the alternator. It was the battery that was bad and I got it replaced. Car starts up so much better now. Just surprised the battery had enough power with no jump to start up again after being dead.
