    I have been having starting issues with my 97 camry..on cold mornings. Upon turning ignition i dont hear a click sound(means starter issue i guess) It just feels dead. But II or III try it will start (gives a feeling that battery is fully charged)
    Today while i was waiting at a light..with car on..radio on..suddenly car turned OFF but lights and radio were working. It started fine after couple of try.
    Is this a sign of some loose wiring in the alternator..or alternator itself.
    Any thoughts appreciated. Thnks.
