Yes may be bad starter if it is weak turning over,make sure all connections are good at battery and starter,if good sounds like you need a replacement.


Many times when a car sits even just a few weeks the battery falls to low voltage and when this happens it opens the door for the terminal wires to corrode which can lead to them shorting out or just not able to let enough voltage threw them so I would replace them all the way to starter ++ an-- all the way to frame.
