start issue

Replaced the starter about 9 months ago, and everything has been going good until today. I wait for the WTS light to go off and turn the key, I get a loud click then nothing until like 15 secs later than it will crank and start. just wondering if its the relay on the firewall. any input is helpful

take off your battery cables and clean the posts for both batteries and spray the anti corrosive stuff, worked for me.
