1999 VW cabrio acts like the battery is dead in mornings (just clicks) then starts up when it warms up outside. I live in Florida so its not really cold in the morning now.
sounds like the starter solenoid is bad, if it does this more on a damp morning then a dry morning then I'd change that first.
i also think it is an starter issue. check this first
