Titan Slow to Turn over - Battery?Starter?Alternator?
I'm not mechanic and the past 5-6 times i've started my truck (09 SE w/ 31k miles) it's been VERY slow to start when I turn the key. My battery volt meter reads fine. Battery terminals are corrosion-free. I did notice that some of the electronics (trip odometer, radio) reset everytime I start the truck. Once it's started, it runs fine. I was under a 1/4 tank and when I filled up tonight, the truck seemed to start a little quicker. That could be totally random, though.
This doesn't seem like a battery issue, but I could be wrong. The battery, starter, and alternator should last MUCH longer than 2.5 years/31k miles, right? Especially the starter and alternator. I'm taking it up to Autozone in the morning but wanted to see if anyone had some feedback w/ prior experiences.
And I assume that the starter/alternator aren't covered under my basic 36k mile warranty? I know that the dealer will cover 25% of a new battery, but I have a feeling their prices are much higher than Autozone+25%.
