Car Won't Start What Could Possible Reasons Be?
Back in February my car would not start and got to towed to a mechanic who thought it was the starter so I replaced it, had no problems for the 3 weeks I was driving it then the pandemic hit and I had no where to drive it to and lost my job, I stopped driving and actually put storage insurance on it to save money. I would on a weekly to bi-weekly basis start up the car and drive it around the parking lot for about 20 to 30mins.
I went to check today as everything is opening up and I want to put my insurance back on. Now the car won't start up. I put in the key and turn for ignition and nothing happens, It sounded like it was trying to start up (vs in the past no turning over sound like in Feb), the music and stuff came on so it seemed like I had power.
I went away thinking maybe the battery is on it's last legs sitting there for so long and already being 5.5 years old. When my wife came home a few hours later I went with her car to jump my car. It did not help at all and I now hear no turning over sound, and nothing really comes on expect I see the oil change icon come on but I can't turn on the music or anything.
I probably will have to get it towed to a mechanic and get it checked out but want to know what the possible problems could be. The car is 2008 mazda 3 and when it died back in February I was already on the fence of putting more money into the car at that time but did it because I needed a car for work and a car while I looked for a new one. I was planning to sell it by the end of summer so really not sure what do at this time.
