    This happened to me on a rainy humid day that the car had not been driven for 3 days. It appeared that the humidity was affecting the starter because after several attempts, some rest (thinking that the starter was dead), and one last attempt, the engine started no problem . Thank god I gave it some time before calling the tow truck.
