Exclamation Struggling to Start

HI All

Bit concerned because when i leave the civic along say for 2-3 days or more it struggles to turn over like theres not enough power left in battery but after a a few attempts its just about starts, could the battery be on its way out im 99% sure everything is turned off so dont think nothing is draining it or could it be the starter morot? if anyone has any experiance of the problem please let me know your solution, its due a service in the next month so will get them to check anyway

any help is apricated

Cheers, Jay

Could just be a dud battery not holding its charge for as long anymore? There are some places that will do a free battery test.

If you get the yuasa battery, when you come to fit it remove the plastic casing fom your car (the battery sits in) it makes it sit slightly proud and the positive connector will tighten up but will easily pop off
