2000 Honda Accord Cpe - Won't start

My sister’s car does not start after she leaves it for weeks without running it. We go on vacation and when we return the car will crank but the motor does not start. The battery is fine (only one year old). If she tries to start it in another day or two it might or might not start. If she drives is regularly, it works fine.

When she leaves it for weeks without running, she needs to hook it to a.small battery charger called a “battery tender”

Thanks, I’ll pass your advice on to her.

You’re very welcome. Please let us know if it helped, and welcome to our community.

Why ?, It still cranks, it won’t fire.
