Hello, it is very likely that you simply need a new battery but there are also other possibilities such as a bad alternator or starter that could display the same symptoms of a slow start:; therefore it may be best to have a technician check the three most crucial components of your electrical system. The battery, the alternator and the starter. Car batteries will lose the ability to output powerful charges on demand. This strong power output is cold cold cranking amps. If the cold cranking amps are getting low the engine will start slower because the power it requires to help turn it on is weaker.
