When I first get my car back from service (with a new starter put in) it starts great. A quick turn of the key and the car is running. After a period of about a month or 2 the car will begin to have slow starts approximately 1 out of every 10 times I start it. When I say slow start I mean that there is a longer cranking period until the engine actually fires up. This 1 out of every 10 times will gradually increase until every time I start the car it seems like it just doens't want to start. Eventually it will come to the point that when I turn the key there is nothing at all. No clicking, no cranking. Nothing. It's like I didn't even turn the key to start the car. The stereo, windshield wipers, etc all work so I figured it had nothing to do with the battery. Also - I should mention that regardless if the car has a slow start or a perfectly normal start the car runs fine once it's fired up. No problems there.
I've had the starter replaced 4 times now (just had the 4th one put in about a week ago), the battery is about 6 months old and there are new spark plugs (put in at the same time as the newest starter so about a week old).
So this amp thing was brought to my attention just last time I picked up my car from service. It came up that maybe it's drawing too much juice from my battery which in turn doesn't put all it's power into the starter when I start the car. I have removed the amp connection to the battery but I don't want to get the amp removed and my speakers rewired back to normal if it's not going to solve anything.
Hopefully I gave a better diagnosis of my problem this time around.
Have any ideas?
