I went to start my car today after driving it twice earlier in the day, and it wouldn't start, dead. But there is still some electric, because the red door open indicator is still showing up but instead of showing a constant door open red symbol, it is flickering. The CD player clicked and then stopped when I first tried to start it. When I tried to turn the llights on, they seem to make a weird clicking noise.

I am not sure if it is the battery or the alternator or an electrical issue. A week ago I had new headlights put in.

I drove to get coffe, then I drove to the gym. After leaving there I then had the car washed. I came home. It sat for about an hour, then I drove again, parked at the store for about 20 minutes. Drove back home. Two hours later it didn't start.
