2014 fiat cabrio will not start after sitting for several weeks. Had battery charged at dealership. Lights turn on but engine won't turn over when key turned on ignition
When a vehicle sits without running for a few weeks a few things can happen. First, the gasoline might have gone bad; especially if the vehicle sat outside in warmer weather. Gasoline has a shelf life of about six to eight weeks before it starts to break down and become "unrefined". Second, you could have some corrosion on the battery terminals or on electrical relay connections that are causing the starting issues. The only way to know for certain is to have a professional mechanic complete a car is hard to start inspection.
