Over the course of the last 5 years
New Alternator = 3 yrs ago
New Battery = 5 months ago
New timing belt = around 5 years ago
Now. I dont drive all that often. No need too. So my car sits for quite long periods of time. Most ill let it sit is a few weeks (Which I know is bad, because it needs driven to keep everything working right).
However this time, something weird is goin on lol.
My car is completely dead. Nothing will show power. I have a little security light thing by my CD player, its not even flashing. Thats how dead my car is.
Ok. I go to hook up the charger to it to recharge the battery. The charger is indicating the battery has a full charge? That cant be right. I changed the charger settings to "Jump". Because my cars in a weird spot and another wont fit next to it to jump it from that.
Cranks.... but doesnt start.
So now im charging it, even though it says its full. And im hoping it will accept a jump in a bit.
Any thoughts? lol

im here now syn so let me help you out.
Does it crank fast, or does it crank slow?
Fuel related issue. Pull plug wires and put them close to the body/egine block to see if they Arc. If the arc is strong, pump the gas pedal a few times. If the fuel isnt getting to your engine, your fuel pump may have taken a shit, or your fuel filter has clogged because I bet you $10 your not putting Sta-Bil in the tank to keep the gas fresh so it thickens up and clogs your filter.
LOWWW battery. Try to jump start it. Sometimes batteries will get so dead, they read fully charged, but once you put a load on them, they just tick. My honda was doing it last week so I put in a new bettery and went along with my day.
Let me know buddy boy.

I left the battery on the charger, even though it read full.
After about 1 hour 30 minutes it started right up.
Stupid Battery/Battery charger.
