    car not starting

    I got an 2005 cts that every now and then will not start. It does not even try to crank over at all but if I let it sit for 10-15min then it starts up like nothing was wrong. Has anyone ever had this happen to them or know what the problem is?

    Yup.....what he said. Take off the terminal and clean them up. Make sure ALL your battery connections are nice and tight.
