Hi,

My car was starting in normal way using car key but after 3 months of parking stopped to start again even after changing new battery.

Hi,

When you wrote that it isn't starting, do you mean the starter isn't engaging or the starter turns the engine, but it refuses to start?

If the starter does engage, try this. See if the engine will start with starting fluid. If it starts and then stalls, we know it is a fuel related issue. If there is no change, I need you to check for spark at the plugs.

Here is a link that explains how to check:

If the starter isn't working, follow the link below and let me know the results.

Take care and let me know what you find.
