alternator or battery most likely dude. start your car the disconnect the battery. if it dies then ur alternator is bad. if it stays runnin go get ur battery tested

Is the starter spinning at normal speed when you try to start it after it has been sitting a while or does it spin a little slower. Sounds to me like the battery is weak. If it starts fine after running a while I would assume your altyernator is recharging the battery while running. The roll start would explain the same thing as well, although i usually would only have to do that if the starter went out.

+1...get the battery checked. If it was the alternator, you would have problems with car while driving. It would start dying on ya.
